The spirit of philanthropy was instilled by his parents, Chris Peck and Chau Nguyen. His younger brother Stephen is a cellist and the two perform together occasionally. He is currently a seventh grader and has completed his high school mathematics courses.
Andre’s joie de vivre is exceptional and reflects a child with enormous talent in a relationship-based life.
