Outside of the office, Andy, who is originally from England, is passionate about rugby and the general ups and downs of various English sporting teams. However he realises he is in All Blacks territory, and has certainly now adopted the boys in black as his team whenever he can.
He is married to Becky and has three young boys; Josh, Ben and Sam. On the weekends, Andy enjoys spending his time coaching his various son’s sporting teams, trying to keep fit and trying to always enjoy the magic of New Zealand.
Andy's beer of choice is Monteith's Pointers Pale Ale.
