Andy was born and raised in upstate New York and was inseparable from his bike as soon as he could ride on two wheels. At the suggestion of a local bike shop employee, he entered his first mountain bike race at the age of 13 and was hooked. After representing the United States at the Junior World Mountain Bike Championships in 2001, Andy began school at Fort Lewis College, a perennial powerhouse in collegiate cycling in Durango, Colorado.

While completing his degree in Exercise Science, Andy slowly shifted his focus from mountain to road, and was able to spend several summers competing in Europe with the U23 National team. Upon graduation, Andy signed his first professional road contract and raced full time until the fall of 2011, when he took on the new challenge of directing the Miller School of Albemarle Endurance Team. In July of 2010, Andy and Peter Hufnagel held the inaugural Charlottesville Bike Camp (CBC) junior development road cycling camp and in 2011 added a mountain bike camp as well. Between the Miller School of Albemarle Endurance Team and Charlottesville Bike Camps, Andy applies his years of professional experience to working with beginner to elite level junior cyclists and enjoys teaching them the skills needed to progress while keeping the sport fun and hopefully a lifelong endeavor.
