Andy is Managing Director of Drama by Design, a small company providing consultancy on the design of specialist technical systems and acoustics consultancy for theatres, TV and radio studios and AV systems. Before Drama by Design was created in 2003, Andy ran several of his own businesses with his wife, including a light equipment distribution company and a marketing company.
Outside of his role of Managing Director, as a member of Bracknell Forest Council’s Independent Review Panel, Andy works on reviewing Councillor’s expenses. He was also a Governor at Bracknell and Wokingham College for seven years, before joining Activate Learning’s Corporation Board and becoming a member of the Audit and Risk Committee. Andy has a strong interest in Further Education and became inspired by the work of Activate Learning whilst working with their Joint Merger Working Group throughout the merger between Activate Learning and Bracknell and Wokingham College.
One of Andy’s personal interests is motorsport. He both races and maintains a Caterham race car and is in the process of rebuilding a classic Mini with his son. Andy also spends his free time boating with his wife, walking his dog and cycling, as well as maintaining a keen interest in restoring listed buildings.
