ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - David Andrade loves talking about the first time he met Jill. They were incoming freshman at the University of Tampa, attending a summer camping event at the school before classes began.
“I don’t know if I had ever spoken to a girl in my life at that point,” says Andrade.
When they bumped into each other, Andrade, who says he was a ‘gaming nerd’ at the time, waved his arms wildly, then crouched and told her she did not really see him. She responded that he was funny and their relationship began.
Now at 33-years-old, Andrade and Jill are married and he is the head of Theory Studios, a visual effects company. The company's work on Amazon Prime’s hit show, 'The Man in the High Castle,' recently earned a Primetime Emmy nomination from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Andrade’s company creates high level work for an industry based on the west coast of the U.S. However, Theory Studios headquarters are not in Hollywood or Silicon Valley. They are in the spare bedroom, home office of a modest suburban Orlando home.
