TESSA ANDRADE

Tessa is H-Town loud and proud. The Houstonite was born right in the heart of “Space City” and still calls the area home. A self-described “blast-in-a-glass,” Tessa landed her first gig as an associate producer with the San Antonio Spurs, where she produced creative video content for web & broadcast platforms. She found that working as both video editor and host meant that no two days on the job are alike, allowing more time to play around creatively. She now works for the Houston Texans on top of being a YOLO TX Co-Host.

Tessa’s favorite season is summertime, when she can float the river with friends and her dog Nya (don’t worry she has a life jacket – it’s lime green).
