Andrew is the youngest son of Reverend Dr. Edward Smith Davis, member of the Common Global Ministries Board and Conference Minister of the Southern Conference, United Church of Christ; and step-son of Reverend Dr. Sharon Ellis Davis. A Chicago-area native, Andrew Davis had a love for videography and television production. Andrew held a Bachelor of Arts degree in Television Production from Columbia College in Chicago, IL and a Master of Arts degree in Television Production from New York Institute of Technology, NY.
