Andy was born in Plattsburgh, New York and grew up in Helena, Montana. Andy was always fascinated with cars. One of his early jobs was doing auto detailing for a Helena auto dealership. Later Andy worked as a finisher for a custom cabinet shop which helped him to develop his eye for fine detail as well as the art of spraying finishes. Andy decided to pursue his passion with cars and completed the Collision Repair program with North Idaho College in 2008.
Andy worked in auto collision repair in Missoula, Montana for seven years, where he refined his skills in insurance estimating, body repair, and custom painting. After hours and on weekends, Andy’s hobby was restoring cars, including his own.
Andy’s love for the Coeur d’Alene area caused him to move back in 2015 where he continued to work in auto collision repair. Coeur d’Alene offers Andy more options to explore his other hobbies include entering car shows, airbrushing, hiking, photography, and cooking.
Andy is excited to share the skills that he has acquired, from college and the positions he held through the years, with students who share the same love for cars.
