American producer and screenwriter, the adopted son of producer Aaron Ruben. Andy and his wife at the time, Katt Shea, wrote and produced several films, "Poison Ivy" with Drew Barrymore and "Dance of the Damned," which Katt directed. He has spent most of his life in the motion picture business. He had early memories of being on the set of "The Sgt. Bilko Show" which his father directed. When he was eleven he moved from New York to L.A. for "The Andy Griffith Show." He landed his first job at seventeen as an apprentice film editor and spent that summer junking old Star Trek trims. Had he only known - he could have stashed them and made a fortune. During his Post years he worked for every major studio in Hollywood with the exception of Fox.
After 12 years in editorial, he sold his first script, a "Love Boat" episode that starred Donald O'Conner and an aquatic seal named Shirley. A few years and many forgettable sitcoms later, he sold his first feature to Crown International and landed at Roger Corman's where he wrote and produced a number of films. After doing "Damned" he moved on to other projects from network pilots to an animation for MTV. In 1997 he returned to Corman to direct and write "Club Vampire," a feature for Showtime.
At the turn of 2000, Andy was living in Florida teaching film production at college level.
