Andy has been working with children inside of classrooms and outside at camps for the past 13 years. He studied Recreation Administration and Environmental Education at Humboldt State University, before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area to work as an Education Director for a environmental non-profit. This position allowed Andy to blend his love of hands-IN-the-ground conservation and natural science within the framework of classroom visit and community events. In his free time, Andy spends entirely too much money testing Portland’s amazing food scene, traveling to the Oregon Coast, devouring comic books and obsessing over pop music.
He has spent about 10 summers in the camp world, including a stint as the Director of Senior Units at Camp Namanu, Camp Fire Columbia’s resident camp. Andy cannot wait to blend his experience of school-year programming with his love for camp programming into Namanu Day Camp in the City.
