    Film work includes four short films as well as the Spanish commercial and the episode in the Spanish TV series already mentioned.

    Andrew was born in County Cork, Ireland and moved to England at a very young age. From 2004 to 2012 he lived and worked in Madrid before returning to the UK. Andrew has had a varied career, including a year as a London based, motorcycle despatch rider and several years as a front-line Engineering soldier with a specialist Arctic warfare unit before settling down in civilian life as an Engineering Manager. Andrew is now hoping to move into professional acting on a full time basis.

    About me

    Stage or film, classical or modern, Andrew simply loves to perform and has a very professional and committed work ethic.

    Andrew first started acting at college and then had a long break until 12 years ago, at which point the passionate bug bit him. Since 2005 Andrew has been very active, appearing in many stage plays, some musical work, short films, an episode of a Spanish TV series and a sole protagonist in a Spanish TV commercial. Andrew has, at the same time, taken on as much professional training as possible: the one year Bristol Acting Academy showcase course at BOVTS, two summer courses with BOVTS as well as short courses with the RSC, City Academy, the London Academy of Media, Film and TV plus some private tutor led workshops, including one-to-one singing lessons.
