Andrew was raised in Queensland, Australia on a cattle ranch. He worked for some of the best cutting horse trainers in Australia before moving to California in 1995. While working for Luke Bakey, Andrew and Nicole met at a local horse show and were married two years later. After working for Gary Gonsalves, Andrew was hired by NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana to run his cutting horse program. That marked the beginning of a successful show career. In 2003, Andrew began training for the public. Success in the show pen continued, with NCHA earnings exceeding $600,000. He has shown cutting horses to 11 major aged event champion and reserve champion titles, along with multiple finalists at over 40 major aged events, including the NCHA Futurity and Super Stakes. Since training for the public in 2003, the horses that Andrew has trained as two year olds have gone on to win over a million dollars.
