Andy comes to PPA with a wealth of experience of competing internationally in swimming & triathlon since 1994. From his teenage years as a swimmer, a successful college career of both swimming & running at the University of Michigan, into a storied, one of a kind, professional triathlon racing career, Andy is passionate about sharing his hard earned knowledge with those who love endurance sports.
Andy has represented Team USA in both swimming and triathlon on the international stage. A medal winner at the World University Games in swimming, a champion at the Pan American games in triathlon, a two-time World Champion, and a very rare feat of being an Olympian and Paralympian (guide), he has seen it all. Andy has won races all over the world, races that last two minutes to over eight hours!
His experiences as an athlete have made Andy into a curious, yet giving coach. Always willing and eager to share his mistakes as well as learn more about sports and people, Andy is excited to help other achieve their goals.
