As keen walkers and cyclists, Andrew and his partner were frequent visitors to Strathard when living in Glasgow and Bridge of Allan, and moved to Aberfoyle in 2010. Andrew has been self-employed since 2014, and has a professional background in consumer representation, particularly in the energy and water sectors. His previous experience also includes management of grant programmes, with economic development, renewable energy, environment and social aims.

Over the last year, Andrew has been able to contribute more towards the community, including some early feasibility work in supporting of the Business Hub, and helping with both the funding application and steering group of the Strathard Business Development project.
