Howdy! I'm Andy - Or Andrew John Heller if you're not into the whole brevity thing. I grew up near the beach in New Jersey and I went to the University of Rhode Island. While in college, I studied Marine Affairs and Underwater Archaeology. I spent this past summer in the Adirondack Mountains in New York as a part of another SCA corps working for the Department of Environmental Conservation. My crew and I spent five months working around the park constructing and repairing trails for hiking and snowmobile use, as well as building bridges with both rustic timber and dimensional lumber. I like to spend my free time trying to defy gravity, although it does get the best of me at times. I believe that as a young and able-bodied person, it is my duty to give back to the planet for everything that it has provided me. I hope that this season will prepare me for many more years of service, and allow me to lead crews for the SCA so that I can help other people with similar beliefs as mine to give back to the planet.
