Biography

Andy was born and raised on the east coast before moving west in 1996. From there he began his ultrarunning career after discovering the rugged, mountainous trails of Arizona. Upon moving to Northern California in 2001 he began participating in 100 mile races which he soon discovered was his strongest distance. The trails of Northern California have proven to be quite good to Andy as he has steadily made his way into the elite level of 100 mile trail races over the past five years. He hopes that his move to Ketchum, Idaho in the summer of 2006 will further his success with the most challenging 100 mile mountain races in the nation.

In their own words...

Favorite quote: "To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." Pre
