When Andrew was 14 years old, he worked with fellow Australian actor Sam Worthington at a workshop in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. It was here he discovered what acting was all about; creating truth in art. He learned that it wasn't about pretending or faking it, but truly being and doing. It was here that he realized he could & would do this for the rest of his life.
Since that moment, Andrew has surrounded himself with some of the greatest acting coaches and mentors of our time. He has worked intensively with Australian actor and coach Nic Bishop, Australia’s most recognized improv teacher Lyn Pierse & Lifetime Member of the Actor’s Studio, acclaimed director and acting coach Jeneffa Soldatic.
Andrew garnered roles in theatre, musicals and television in Sydney where Soldatic identified Andrew’s extraordinary talent and passion. She promptly introduced him to world-renowned acting coaches in the US; Susan Batson (Award winning director & Acting Coach for Nicole Kidman, Juliette Binoche & Oprah Winfrey) and Elizabeth Kemp (Acting Coach for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga).
Upon invitation to continue working with Batson and Kemp and to begin his career in the US, Andrew relocated to New York City and he worked consistently and closely with these inspirational mentors. He also continued to develop into a professional singer; training with Broadway and Juilliard singing coaches Mary Setrakian and Karen Nimereala.
Equipped with a vast range of skills and experience that allow him to work across all mediums, from film and theatre to musicals and music recording, Andrew maintains excellence throughout his many crafts. He now shares his time between Vancouver, Sydney, New York and LA. Today he is committed to fulfilling that which he learned about acting all those years ago in that workshop with Sam Worthington; to tell important stories about human beings that reveal the truth of humanity.
