Mr. Andrews graduated from Laurinburg, College in North Carolina with a B.A. in Business Management. His father Mr. Edward Andrews is the founder of Triple A striping, operating in Edmonton for 36 years. He believed in laying the foundation for his children & future generations. During summer months Dorian worked alongside his dad & learned all aspect of the business.

On graduation he entered the company full time. He soon became the Manager of a division which brought the most revenue to the overall financial success of the company. For 16 years he worked as part of the team responsible for directing the vision, and development of the company with his father & older brother, past President Kwame Andrews.
