Andrew Bradshaw

Andrew joined the AwardWallet team in February 2023. Having a British father and a Greek mother, experiencing different cultures has been in his blood since before birth.


Like Erik, Andrew attended the University of Michigan and received a Bachelor of Arts while focusing his studies on Pre-law with the goal of crushing law school. But in the summer of 2010, Andrew took a 3-month backpacking trip around Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay, and his life was changed forever.


From that moment forward, Andrew knew that he wanted to live a life of travel. He has since traveled to 51 countries while living in 12 of them. Andrew has since slowed his roll and is now living in Athens, Greece.


When Andrew isn’t traveling the world and creating new experiences, you can find him playing a game of football or tennis with friends, winning tons of money playing poker, bumbling his way through new languages, supporting Detroit & Michigan sports teams, and helping out with stray dogs in and around Athens.
