Andy was Brett Shimura's first crush, first kiss, and first love. According to Brett, one weekend while coming over to Brett's house, they slept in the same bed. However, Brett's parents walked in and Andy was taken out of Brett's life forever.

Their young love, while doomed, was already a done deal, even though only a handful of words had passed between them. However, their first encounter – eased by a certain kind of self-effacement – would consolidate the emotions Brett had already elicited in him, just as the lashes to his eyes had already tugged at something in Brett's heart. Andy is first mentioned in Season 1.

For Andy, he was described as being the most (and only) caring, and loyal best friend of Brett. His romantic feelings for Brett have brought the two of them closer more than ever. Andy's true sexuality, he keeps hidden from his parents in fear that others including Brett's parents may not accept him. Brett's the only one that knows the truth, having shared multiple kisses with Andy before they were broken up by Brett's parents.
