1977 – 2019

Andrew founded and operated two real estate data management startups in the late 1990s, becoming an expert at managing technical teams and overseeing continuous software development. In 2009, Andrew partnered with long-term business associate and friend, Nathan Tayloe, to form Tayloe/Gray. Together, the pair built a rockstar agency of web developers, creative designers, and marketing strategists, earning the title of Wilmington’s #1 Advertising and PR firm according to the WBJ’s 2016 Book on Business.

Beyond the business, Andrew was an active board member of WHQR – the local public radio station, and a passionate educator – regularly hosting seminars and teaching classes on smart social media, blogging, and eCommerce strategies at Cape Fear Community College.

After 10 years of work at the company he cofounded, Andrew passed away on October 5th, 2019. Andrew’s ideas, aesthetic, and mad energy still inspire the team at Tayloe/Gray. He is missed greatly and remembered fondly. #NoRagrets
