Andrew grew up having fun in the outdoors of Montana, and from a young age has loved inline skating, soccer, handstands, snowboarding, dancing, hiking, juggling, and having a good time in motion. His passion for fitness developed out of his own journey from injury and chronic pain into mindful movement and healing.  Andrew teaches fitness classes at Seattle Bouldering Project and circus arts classes at the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts.  He also teaches after-school inline skate classes, and is is the founder of KineticTree Fitness.

During a short career in Chicago as a theater sound designer and composer, I realized that my lifestyle was not leading me down a path of longevity. Between sitting for hours on a computer in a dark theater, to eating out regularly to accomodate my busy schedule, I was not getting the real nutrition that I needed: regular, varied movement and real, wholesome foods. I have a passion for movement in all forms, and I’m always excited to have somebody teach me something new.
