Andy has been behind the lens since she was 14; taking the passion from her father's hobby, she grew up photographing her home town of Washington DC and the many places her family traveled. She received a BA in Visual Arts with a focus on Photography and Calligraphy from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg Florida in 1995. Andy continued her education with a degree in Travel Writing and Photography from Morris College of Journalism in Sussex England in 1997. In 1998 she moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado and shortly thereafter met her husband Craig, who was paralyzed skiing in 1996. In 2003 they formed Access Anything, and published two guidebooks on adventuring with a disability, Access Anything: Colorado in 2005 and Access Anything: I Can Do That in 2007. From 2005 to 2011, Access Anything specialized in bringing adventure sports camps to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, assisting Steamboat in marketing to and accomodating people with disabilities, and educating the public on the growing accessible travel market. They helped to form the Disability Advisory Board for Continental Airlines in 2008, partnered with Adaptive Adventures on their camps, were members of three SATH Annual Conferences, consulted with Open Doors Organization on industry trainings and education, and have worked tirelessly at advancing the disabled travel market and are very networked within the industry.
Andy was the lead photographer at all three sports camps in Steamboat for 6 years, the lead photographer for the No Barriers USA events in 2007 and 2009 and part time photographer for No Barriers USA 2011. Most of her photos on this site come from those events (and therefore all with media releases), or from their many travels stateside and abroad.
