About Andy


I was born in Southern California, the second child of parents Jim and Linda (who have been married nearly 40 years!). When I was 4, my parents decided to move me and my sister Tiffany to Minnesota. They didn't know anyone here (!), but heard it was a great place to raise kids. I'm very happy we ended up here!

Growing up, I loved to play video games with friends (N64), practice my trumpet, go to garage sales with my mom and sister, and run with our boston terrier Daisy. I graduated from Woodbury High School and then went on to get a Bachelors at Gustavus Adolphus College in Math and Economics. I was offered an Actuarial position at Travelers Insurance in St. Paul, studied (for several years!) to get credentialed, and now have been there nearly 10 years. My main role at Travelers is determining the price for Cyber Insurance.


I met John in 2014 and knew he was the one! I couldn't be happier to have found my forever. I have a wide array of hobbies as an adult. I love to travel, and one of my favorite memories is encountering a wallaby on a hike in southern Australia. I like to stay active (for both physical and mental health!) and lift weights and run regularly. John may be the better cook, but I also likes to cook healthy, delicious meals. Finally, I am a big fan of public radio and enjoy staying up to date on the latest world events.

I can't wait to be a father and my compassion for others, "go get 'em" attitude, and loving heart will serve our future child well.
