"I worked for QMx for six months in 2012 - Andy took a risk on me during a difficult time in my life, and although it didn't work out long term he stayed in touch for some time afterward. I will always remember his kind, supportive nature. I hope everyone at QMx is doing well."
"He was always a very kind and thoughtful guy."
- Julian H.
"Despite only seeing Andy speak once during a Q-Con event, I felt like he could have befriended anyone he met. His passion was undeniable, overtly tangible, and contagious. He had some awe-inspiring visions that I'm grateful he was able to share with us. Rest in Peace, King."
