Growing up in Arizona and attending college in Colorado gave Andrew a passion for outdoor adventures. International travel with family and friends has been an integral part of his life since early childhood. He began studying Spanish at an early age and his numerous trips to Central America and South America have focused on Spanish language immersion, as well as exploration. Andrew is an avid snowboarder, mountain biker, hiker and traveler who is always seeking new challenges and new destinations to experience. Andrew’s years spent with AdventureSmith have allowed him to experience Alaska, Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands, Amazon Rainforest, Antarctica and the Mediterranean. In 2011 Andrew was recognized at the Travelage West Wave Awards as the Grand Prize winner in the category of “Rockstar Travel Agent under 40.” Working at AdventureSmith Explorations offers him a chance to continue exploring the world while helping fellow travelers discover our unique style of expedition cruises and wilderness adventures.
