After high school Andy moved to Burlington to pursue his passions: skateboarding, music and art. Through self-motivation, curiosity, and hard work Andy soon excelled at turntabalism and deejaying and started a hip hop collective called VT Union with partner in crime, multi platinum engineer & producer, Nastee. Before long professional artists such as Lauren Hill, Nas, Damian Marley, and Mixed Master Mike wanted A-Dog & VT Union to represent them as their opening act . He traveled across country and overseas representing prestigious companies such as Burton, Skullcandy, and Nike. DJ/Turntabalist Andy “A_Dog” Williams was the epitome of generosity, positivity and curiosity. His passion and innovativeness in music, skateboarding, and art earned him recognition as a musical talent and an innovator. After Andy was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in December 2012, his possible cure was a bone marrow transplant. Because of Andy’s mixed ethnicity, he faced a seemingly impossible challenge of finding a bone marrow donor, with his odds of a match being 1 in 20 million. After Andy’s diagnosis, his beloved community rose to the occasion by creating the group “Friends for A_Dog”. This group helped support Andy through benefits and bone marrow drives during his journey. With Andy’s passing in December 2013 from complications post-transplant, Friends for A_Dog (FFA_D) transitioned to become a non-profit to help carry on Andy’s legacy.
