A SHORT BIO
Andy's production career started at the ripe age of 15 as lead A-V tech in his high school's 750 seat auditorium. Early in his civil engineering studies at CSU, he jumped from the collegiate ship diving head first into music. His first few years were a trial by fire with local bands Euforquestra and White Water Ramble, plus working as a stage manager and site ops for local festivals.
After frequently crossing paths with the Bay Area's Hot Buttered Rum in the early 2010s they offered a FOH position, launching his national touring career. In short time he was added to regular rotation at The Fox, Boulder Theater, and Mishawaka Amphitheatre, in addition to working larger festivals such as Telluride Bluegrass, New West Fest, Summer Camp. In 2014 he did two tours as MON/SM with Nashville based super group Hard Working Americans, and then took on TM/FOH/all-crew-in-one with the Jeff Austin Band, plus MON for Denver's annual recreation of The Last Waltz featuring 40+ rotating musicians. At the end of 2015, he moved up to small-arena and semi-truck touring as MON/Drum Tech with Big Gigantic.
In 2016 he mixed FOH for Gregory Alan Isakov's Symphony Tour, which included a show at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra. 2017 through to the pandemic was spent as MON/SM with bluegrass luminaries Yonder Mountain Sting Band, alongside one-offs with national acts The Motet, Jackie Greene, Della Mae, Infamous Stringdusters, and more, while also filling shifts locally at Washington's and The Armory. At the beginning of 2022, he accepted the MON position with Colorado legends String Cheese Incident.
During his time away from the stage, Andy is an avid climber and spends as much time possible exploring the mountains. He also enjoys mountain biking, backcountry skiing, yoga, amateur photography, and a well-balanced local IPA. He is a proud home owner in northwest Fort Collins and happily shares it with his partner, Savannah, and their fur child/cat, Voo. In 2019, Andy launched Uplift: FoCo, an organization that works to expand access to music for underserved youth in Northern Colorado; www.upliftfoco.com. During the pandemic, Andy began a secondary career in Experiential Education with at risk teens at The Matthews House. He started a youth music program in 2021 that provided over 300 music lessons and 60 hours of group instruction in its first year, plus an outdoor program, for which he guides backpacking, rock climbing, & snowshoeing adventures.
