Andy’s passion for the outdoors came at a very young age spending time with his father, uncles and grandparents hunting primarily deer and waterfowl in the prairie pothole region of North Dakota. That love for the outdoors has continued his entire life and he now shares the passion with all five of his boys throughout the seasons. Andy enjoys watching his kids stay active in several sports including football, hockey, basketball, golf, and wrestling. He is involved with the community by contributing to many volunteer committees including the Grand Forks Chapter of Ducks Unlimited since 2000, the Optimist Club, Knights of Columbus, Law Enforcement 5k Committee, and his parish annual fundraiser. Andy began contributing to American Heroes Outdoors as an Ambassador in 2017. He currently serves as the Sheriff of Grand Forks County, where he has been serving since 2005. Andy currently lives in Grand Forks where he and his wife Callie raise their five boys.
