Andy is a recovering lawyer. Having worked at an international law firm for eight years, and then as a media lawyer at ITV and Endemol for a further 11 years, he ran away from the law to India with his wife and two daughters.
They lived in Chennai for three years working with an incredible organisation called International Justice Mission, freeing Dalits from modern-day slavery in brick kilns, rice mills and rock quarries and prosecuting slave owners. In doing so, Andy developed a passion for justice and a deeper understanding of God as a compulsive rescuer.
Returning from India to London, he dabbled in micro-finance with World Vision before moving on to lead Laureus Sport for Good, which uses sport as a tool to bring social transformation for children and young people.
Andy first discovered Greenbelt in 1982 (missing U2 by a year!) and has called the festival home ever since. Home should be somewhere where we are challenged, safe and loved. He would like Greenbelt to be home for a lot more people.
