As a kid, Andy always gravitated toward art, but at the same time loved to work with his hands, building forts and skateboard ramps, fixing bicycles and learning how things are put together. Andy says architecture has been the perfect career path for him because it combines both his creative and technical interests.
A St. Louis native, Andy graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana with a Bachelor of Architecture and is a Licensed Architect in the State of Missouri. Most of his career has been focused on higher education projects including student housing and dining, academic buildings, student centers, campus hardscapes/site structures, and parking garages. He specializes in design development, construction documents, building code review, quality control, specifications and construction administration.
Andy says the greatest aspect of his work is seeing the finished product and being able to say, “I helped make that real.” Outside of work, Andy enjoys home renovation and restoration, woodworking, camping, collecting old hand tools, spending time with his wife, Kristyn, and raising their two children and two dogs.
