Andy Cies’ name isn’t misspelled. He was raised as close to the Pacific Ocean as possible by parents convinced that while drinking salt water is bad for you, breathing it is a very good thing. A youth spent becoming as tall as possible led to studying engineering and film at Duke. After failing to eat a 70 oz steak in the allotted time and therefore having to pay for it, Andy returned to Southern California and now serves as a Community Group Coach for the West LA and Santa Monica area. He loves all things Crossroads, except for the fact that someone keeps cutting all the donuts in half.
