Andrew was born and raised in the Granite State, and has embodied New Hampshire’s motto, “live free or die”. Since graduating from the University of New Hampshire in 2010 with a B.S. in Environmental Conservation, he has travelled the world serving as a steward of public lands. His journey began as an SCA intern building hiking trails on the coastal rainforest of Alaska’s Chugach National Forest. After spending three summers with the US Forest Service in the land of the midnight sun, he continued on to the green mountains of Vermont, serving as a leader with the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps. Most recently he has been seen in the rugged mountains and valleys of southwest Montana, training Montana Conservation Corps members in the ways of trail work, and teaching Nordic ski technique and winter ecology to local school groups. In his free time, Andrew can be found riding his shiny red bike as fast as possible, Nordic skiing through fairyland, or sitting on the shores of a river, lake, or sea contemplating the intricacies of life. While he attempts to spend the majority of his time outside, he can also be found in the kitchen creating homemade bread and pizzas, or on his yoga mat posing as a fearless, peaceful warrior.
