Born in St John’s Wood, Andrew first entertained aged seven, playing a tree. Thereafter he worked relentlessly until temporarily slowed down by a diagnosis with carcinoid cancer, following which he underwent colon resection, further treatment and surgery. He additionally overcame sepsis and pneumonia, recovering well and has developed several productions under the i-media-tv ltd. umbrella and has separately developed two further projects with Italian writers Paolo and Mario. Andrew has a passion for storytelling and attributes this to his late father Gordon, whose tales of life in Africa and the Netherlands entertained him during his childhood. He has supported both cancer and dementia charities, having cared for his mother during the final stages of this challenging illness.
Andrew originally trained as an actor and fronted the last Midland Bank mortgage campaign, modelled an extensive photographic series for XL Magazine, appearing in a myriad of commercials and corporate films too. On the popular ALL NEW ALEXEI SAYLE SHOW Andrew appeared as a character whose catchphrase was “I’m not happy!”.
He has contributed to Media Fairs at Oxford Brookes University and has recently judged a student film festival for Best Western at Anil Puri’s Grimsdyke House. He has three children whom he refers to as his worst critics and his greatest achievements and currently lives in the grounds of the Dashwood estate.
