Andrew is a director and writer who grew up in the Black Country, roaming car boot sales searching for forgotten video nasties and staying up late to absorb cinema’s weirdest offerings.

Since then he’s gone on to create bold visuals for music videos and short films, earning himself a UKMVA nomination and countless awards for his short form work. Only recently his short film PETER THE PENGUIN was announced that it’ll be screening as part of the 2021 SLAMDANCE FILM FESTIVAL. Before that it won Best Short Film at the 2020 edition of GRIMMFEST, premiered at the 2020 FANTASIA FILM FESTIVAL, and has screened at the majority of the biggest genre film festivals in the UK and beyond.

In 2020 alone, Andrew has screened in four BAFTA Qualifying Film Festivals along with earning himself a place on the BFI NETWORK x BAFTA CREW. He’s currently finishing up on a collection of dark comedy & horror short films that have been touring the festival circuit, one of which, THE FRONT DOOR also premiered at FRIGHTFEST.

Andrew is also currently mentoring upcoming filmmakers as part of the BACK IN programme which invests in Birmingham’s future black filmmakers and diverse communities through training and mentorships.
