He has performed all over the world and worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Richard Branson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Robert Kennedy Jr., Sir Jeffrey Archer, the NZ All Blacks rugby team and many more. Andrew's personal career highlight so far, was working with Sting as a lead and backing vocalist in 2004 and 2006.Andrew wrote and released his debut single 'She Waits' in 2010 which reached #1 on the New Zealand iTunes singer songwriter chart.
