Andrew is a Canadian freelance documentary photographer and videographer. Born in Mississauga, Ontario, he joined the Canadian Army Reserve Infantry at sixteen. After studying political science in university he travelled extensively throughout Southeast Asia, including Thailand where he documented the 2014 political crisis unfolding on the streets of Bangkok. After a near death experience in an accident on the Mekong in Laos he decided to pursue a career in visual storytelling, studying Photojournalism at Loyalist College. After graduating in 2016 he based himself in Brazil and began studying Portuguese and pursuing projects. His most recent work explores the dynamic between political polarization and social inequality with people fighting for their voices to be heard or to silence those of others.

He has contributed his work to the Toronto Star/Star Media Group, Sun Media/QMI Agency, and select galleries in Canada.
