Andy is an international man who has traveled all over the world with his wife, Trisha. During his time in the military, they have lived in Guam, Germany, and Texas. They acquired many fun hobbies along the way (SCUBA diving, hiking, biking, running, golfing, mud-runs, etc.). They have one daughter (Briar) and one son (Elijah).
Though he has seen many different places, South Dakota has always been held near and dear to him and his wife. They decided to move back and start to grow roots in the area they had grown up. Recently Andy and his family have gotten into micro-farming where they raise a garden of tomatoes, sweet corn, potatoes and more. They are also adding trellises of grapes to start a potential vineyard!
When Andy isn’t traveling the world, spending time with family or tending to the crops you might find him playing some instruments (drums, piano, and guitar).
