Andrew lives his life with a commitment to share the wisdom of his Native American ancestry. He understands that this way of life can bring a person to their center and allow them to be in good relation with all things. As a Sun Dancer, Pipe Carrier and healer Andrew humbly guides individuals along their personal path to their true self.
Andrew has been involved in life transforming programs in San Quentin Prison, AA communities, LA Men’s center and many other organizations. He mentors young men and helps guide them along the path to being good men. His love of nature inspired him to create outdoor retreats where people can learn about themselves thru their direct experience from our earth mother. Andrew has been blessed to sit in ceremony with medicine keepers from Mexico, Hawaii, New Zealand, Africa, Peru, Tibet, Bali , Canada and other Native ceremonial leaders from this great Turtle Island.
Andrews Grandmother spent many hours teaching him about human nature and the struggles between the mind and the heart. She would tell him “ If you don’t understand humans, you can’t help them.” With her inspiration and his own thirst of knowledge, Andrew dedicated his life to “Anthropos”, The art of being a better human.
In 2010 Andrew found the love of his life, Carrie. They have combined their gifts and bring them forward in retreats around the world. Andrew cherishes his combined family of five children and reminds them “ Don’t just get old, learn something”.
