Andy began square dancing as a member of El Camino Reelers 3rd square dance class in the fall of 1986, and attended his first IAGSDC convention Explode The Rose in 1987. Shortly thereafter, he was invited to join the Gold Rush performance team based in San Francisco.

By 1989, Andy had tried calling some singing calls for Gold Rush and at club record nights for El Camino Reelers and Foggy City Dancers. Andy attended the first GCA Caller School in New York in 1989, and called his first convention "tip" at Peel the Apple in New York.

In 1991, Andy became club caller for El Camino Reelers in Palo Alto, CA., and taught Basic, Mainstream, and Plus classes for them until he moved away in 2004. In 1992, Andy started teaching Basic and Mainstream for Foggy City Dancers in San Francisco, again serving in that role until 2004. Andy also taught Advanced and C1 classes for El Camino Reelers and Midnight Squares. Andy has been on staff of 5 IAGSDC conventions: Diamonds In The Desert Albuquerque 1992, Stars, Thars & Cable Cars SF 1996, Anchors Aweigh With a Half-Sashay San Diego 2003, Remake The Heatwave Phoenix 2004, and Star Thru The Silicon Galaxy Santa Clara 2005.

Andy is a member of CALLERLAB and is a past president of the Gay Callers Association.

In 2002, Andy received the Golden Boot Award from Betsy Gotta, and in 2003 he passed it on to Rick Hawes.
