Andy started shooting smallbore at prep school in 1974, taking up full-bore shooting at Rugby School as part of the Cadet Force, entering his first Imperial Meeting in 1981 (and every year it has been run since). He has represented Hertfordshire regularly since 1994, and has represented England in both the National and Mackinnon Matches. First touring with the 1995 NRA Team to the Channel Islands, it was only later that Andy caught the touring bug; making up for lost time, he has rediscovered the pleasures of touring with the 2012 Great Britain team to Canada & USA, 2013 England team to South Africa, the 2015 British Commonwealth Goodwill Team to USA, and the 2017 England team to Guyana, and also competing as an individual in the 2019 Long Range World Championships in New Zealand.
A biochemist by training, Andy is now a Connectivity and Deployment Specialist in the Point-of-Care medical diagnostics sector, working closely with colleagues throughout Africa; He lives in Bedfordshire with his partner, Donna, and son, Harrison. Away from the ranges, he enjoys skiing (slowly), golf (with a wicked slice), DIY (carefully) and off-road driving (muddy); He is a qualified light helicopter pilot, although being an even dearer hobby than shooting and off-roading, he rarely gets to play, so enjoys the less costly alternative of flying the radio-controlled versions.
