I’m Andy, and I’m an academic geographer who serves as an assistant professor of geography at Mansfield University in north central Pennsylvania. Frankly, I’m proud of that fact even if I have to explain when I meet someone exactly what it is a geographer “does.” (While we’re at it: we don’t memorize maps). This is my website, and it has everything about me that you’d ever want to know, and probably even more than that. The links above will get you where you need to go. Enjoy!
