Andy has studied art his entire life, starting with pastels, sketching, and oil painting in his grandmother’s studio. He attended film school in Portland, OR, then worked as an independent commercial filmmaker turned photographer. While chasing his dream of sharing the beauty of Earth, he hopes to inspire others to leave a better trace. Andy is a regular contributor to National Geographic Adventure, ROAM, and his production company, Lone Bison Films. All said and done, he tRuly enjoys aligning with friends and likeminded brands that share his passion for the outdoors. 

"Adventure to me is breaking away from the expected. It's to seek out and discover that which stirs the soul. I am powered by the stars and am eager to share what's out here. Being outside gives me a chance to recalibrate and gain a fresh perspective. A place to find inspiration for life. Outside is freedom."
