Andrew leads our Business Advisory & Taxation team — specialising in strategic advice that helps business owners to streamline their operations, and drive profits up. His passion for, and past experiences as a small business owner are evident in the advice he provides his clients.
Andrew’s always had a fascination for business — which combined with a decisive mindset, has seen him embark on several successful ventures.
He bought his first business soon after graduating university — a takeaway shop called Taste of Asia. Four years later and ready for new challenges (and better coffee), he bought Aroma Records — a record shop/café.
Far from a desk jockey — Andrew’s other interests often see him leave the beaten path. His love of travel has seen him in wandering Southeast Asia, India (where he proposed to his wife) and Europe.
He’s not shy of water either — whether it be above (fishing), or below (diving). Weekends often see him immersed, along with fellow diver Jonathan Elliot, hunting for crayfish or abalone.
