As part of our Action Sports group, Andy gets to work on two of his passions: skateboarding and engineering. Over the past 10 years, he’s been involved in over 40 skate parks, contributing everything from earthwork calculations to drainage plans and fine grading.
Before becoming an engineer, Andy traveled the world competing as a professional skateboarder. He then transitioned into a career as an engineer, developing a deep understanding of the various components of land development. Combining those two careers has given Andy an educated eye for functional skate park flow, as well as the expertise to practically contour a project to a client’s needs.
According to Andy, the most rewarding project he’s worked on is the Oldsmar BMX track in Florida. He’s particularly proud of how he and his team were able to identify potential issues with site drainage and facilitate discussions among all of those involved to arrive at a cost-effective solution based in sound engineering.
When he’s not working, Andy can be found on the golf course or skating with his kids at his local skate park, a half-mile from his house.
