Andrew's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a trained actor and have had the pleasure of working from Edinburgh to Austria and lots of places in between on a variety of projects ranging from Joan Rivers' VIP chaperone to Shakespeare's Macbeth. As well as acting I have extensive experience in experiential marketing as a brand ambassador/team leader/tour manager for clients including Playstation3, Accenture and Warner Bros. I am individually motivated, however, also great within a team out in the field or equally at project development level in the office. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
