Biography

Andy’s design proficiency is wide and diverse. His toolset includes digital and paper based concept visualisation, 3d modelling, detailed structural drafting, and presentational plan sets combined with hands on fabrication across a full spectrum of materials and machinery.

He began working in theatre and film in 1999, gathering broad experiences in props model making, set building, sculpting and special effects.

In 2005 he began the Bachelor of Theatre Design at NIDA, graduating with the William Fletcher Trust Grant in 2007. He has since extended his training with both Urban and International Development permaculture design certificate's in whole system ecological design.

With a love for the moment in temporary, or semi permanent design, Andy is always driven towards new challenges and continues to extend his practice into designing structures that will be part of the inhabitants evolving stories on a trans-generational timescale...
