Andres Hermosillo spent the first twenty three years of his life growing up in sunny California where he and his four siblings sought to drive their parents to the brink of insanity by constantly fighting.
When not fighting with his siblings, (now his best friends), he enjoyed spending his weekends relaxing on the beach, hanging out with his extended family, and eating the state's finest burritos. After graduating cum laude from UCLA, he worked for two years as a financial risk analyst for the State of California where he learned the value in risk analysis and anticipating financial exposure. He then sought to attend law school in a state completely different than his own home state to expand his horizons. He therefore enrolled at the University of Utah where he subsequently learned what black ice was, how to snowshoe, and also gain an appreciation for the states many national parks. Following law school, he began his career practicing criminal defense, personal injury, estate planning, government, and family law before switching to insurance defense.
In his spare time Andres enjoys traveling as much as possible, eating as much as possible, and exploring the various craft breweries Denver has to offer.
