Andy is originally from New York, but in 2003 realized his lifelong dream when he moved to Polson, Montana. In addition to shooting competitively and giving shooting lessons he enjoys fly-fishing, traditional archery, hunting, knife making, and horse and dog training.
Andy began shooting sporting clays in 1983, like many other avid shotgun shooters, as a way to improve his wing shooting. Since that time he has been on the NSCA All-American Team 17 times, Team USA 20 times and has over 130,000 Lifetime Targets. He has claimed the NSCA National Championship title 3 times, winning it first in 1994, successfully defending the title in 1995 and claiming it again in 2002. In 2005 Andy was honored by being inducted into the NSCA Hall of Fame.
