Andy was born and raised in Phoenix. His lifelong love of physical fitness grew while rowing for Brophy College Prep’s crew team (located on Tempe Town Lake – the only body of water in the valley!).

He worked his way up to national-level meets, culminating in the Arnold Classic in 2019. Andy is excited to bring his love of competitive sports to the ProActive team, helping patients recover from injuries and reach their potential.
