Andrew, a New Zealand trained doctor and award-winning author, has been working in General Practice since 1997. He is based in Tauranga working full time as a primary care physician, medical director and clinical researcher with extensive experience in governance roles for health and community organisations. Andrew has a particular interest in respiratory medicine, collaborating extensively with the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand, and co-authoring several papers which have influenced asthma guidelines globally.

Writing has been a delightful creative release for him, whether in the form of coaxing life out of a dry, academic article, or embracing the unpredictability of crafting fiction. Family life, podcasting, outdoor pursuits and growing avocados complete his priorities.
