After graduating from Berea College with a degree in biology in 1993, Andy moved to Fayetteville and began working for the Northwest Arkansas Times as a clever ploy to enable him to see his beloved Kentucky Wildcats play basketball. In addition to photography, Andy enjoys baseball, working on old cars and marveling at how old that makes him sound.
