Andrew is a carpenter and a father of two that lives in Sydney NSW.

Andrew has been competing in fishing in bream competitions since 2010.

He has represented Australia twice in China with the best result being 4th. He has also competed in several Australian bream championships, with the highest result of 4th.

This will be his first time attending a Hobie worlds competition and his first time fishing on the Gold Coast.

His biggest bream to be weighed in was a 1.73 kg beast caught in a Southern Bream grand final at St George’s basin. That bream anchored his bag to secure his second of three grand final wins in that series.

His most recent win was in the Pirtek Fishing Challenge where he won the big bream category for NSW with a bream measuring 478mm.

Other hobbies include kitesurfing and surfing.
