About Andrew

My name is Andrew Scott Lorenz and I was born on April 11, 1977. I was born in the Phoenixville Hospital and adopted by my parent’s right after birth.

Where I’ve been…
I grew up in several places from 1977 until 1982 including Bristol, Pa; Phoenixville, Pa; and Sellersville, Pa. In 1981 we had a new addition to our family; my brother Matthew was brought into the world July 26th.

In 1982, over the winter holiday break from school, I moved from Sellersville, Pa to Levittown, PA and we remained there until the summer of 1993 when we made our last move as a family to Etters, Pa; which is right across the river from Harrisburg, Pa. From 1995 onward I lived on the West Shore including Mechanicsburg, Pa, Enola, Pa and now Carlisle, Pa where I live today.

What I’ve done in my career…
In 1994 I started my first job at a local fast food restaurant in the area and worked my way up to management after my graduation from Red Land High School in June of 1995. I made my first job change in 1996 from one fast food chain to another. In June 1996 I switched careers and started doing customer service for an international corporation. In 2001 I switched jobs again and worked for a horse racing track in the area doing internet wagering customer service. In 2003 I moved into the career of my choice and started to work third shift for an outsourcing help desk company. I switched careers in 2004 again and started working for a company doing Data Entry on a three month Contract. After that contract expired I transitioned into a “Telecommunication Technical Specialist” with the same company supporting computer hardware and software which was placed into daycare centers across the state of Pennsylvania. In October 2006 I started as a Business Analyst for Capital BlueCross in their Medicare Programs unit which is based in Harrisburg. I originally started as a contractor and was officially hired on by CBC in September of 2008. In May of 2014 I accepted a new position within CBC, but with their healthcare technology group called Geneia, where I am a Product Ops Analyst.

My Relationships…
In 1995 I started to date a wonderful woman and in November of 2000 I was proud to call my wife. Unfortunately, the relationship didn’t work out like we had planned and we separated in 2002 and finally divorced in 2005. I decided to take a several year break from the dating scene and after several dating attempts (some of which went well, others not so well) I started to date a young lady and on Christmas morning 2010, in front of her family, I got down on one knee and proposed to the love of my life and we were married on April 28, 2012 in a ceremony held at Trindle Spring Lutheran Church in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

My True Calling…
In September of 2003 I finally found my life’s calling and started doing work on the side as a web designer for several sites including the IF Skin Zone which is a resource forum for a free message board called InvisionFree, Trindle Spring Lutheran Church which is my father’s church and my personal website titled AndrewLorenz.com. In August 2004 I started a small website design and Information Technology company called Lorenz Technologies and hopefully that will continue to prosper in the coming years so that becomes my primary source of income. But for this time, it’s merely a hobby which I get occasionally get paid for.

My Volunteer Service…
In June of 2013 I started to volunteer for one of the local Carlisle Fire Departments (Carlisle Fire and Rescue Services, Company 45). I started out as doing administrative work around the station and I was also their webmaster. Over a period of time I became their company photographer which allows me access to emergency scenes where I can document the work the emergency personal do. In addition to the photography, I’m also heavily involved with their fundraising activities and I’m also a member of both the Membership and Fund Raising committees. I’ve also started to do some work on the fire side directly by training to become a driver and operator of some of the emergency vehicles used by the company. This training is still ongoing, but at some point I’ll be qualified to drive both the utility and the air wagon to emergency calls.
