Andrew was born and raised in the African Country of Zimbabwe, to a mother and father who encouraged him to explore the wild and stay with the local village people from a very young age. These experiences of hunting, trapping and fishing with village people instilled in him the awe and wonder of local traditions and wildlife that have led him into his chosen career path.
His knowledge on the wildlife habits and habitats, as well as his deep understanding of the local people and their different cultures, has seen him across the vast majority of Africa creating documentary films to pass on his knowledge of Africa to those across the world who may share a passion for Africa. Andrew has been hunting and filming with some of the most dedicated conservationists over the last decade and has a wealth of experience borne from these many adventures.
