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 on while studying civil engineering at CSU, he jumped from the collegiate ship diving into music. His first years were 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 2012 they offered a FOH position. The following year he was added to regular rotation at The Fox, Boulder Theater, and Mishawaka Amphitheatre. In 2014 he did two tours as MON/SM with Nashville based super group Hard Working Americans along with occasional one-offs for national acts such as The Motet, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, and New Orleans Suspects. Fall of the same year he started a full time position as TM/FOH/all-crew-in-one with the Jeff Austin Band, plus was added at MON for Denver's annual recreation of The Last Waltz featuring 40+ rotating musicians. 

At the end of 2015 he moved to MON/Drum Tech with Big Gigantic and an introduction into semi touring. In June 2016 he mixed FOH for Gregory Alan Isakov's Symphony Tour, which included a show at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra. 2017-2020 saw him touring full time as MON/SM with bluegrass luminaries Yonder Mountain Sting Band, plus occasionally filling shifts locally at Washington's and The Armory.

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 baby/cat Voo. In 2019 Andy launched Uplift: FoCo, a benefit concert with the mission to inspire community growth through exceptional local music.  www.upliftfoco.com. In 2020, Andy began a career in Experiential Education at The Matthews House.
