Andrew was born in Aberdeen and has lived in Stonehaven for most of his life. In his early years he was lucky enough to excel in two sports, golf and football, and represented his country in both sports as a schoolboy. In golf he is one of the few players to have won both the North East Boys and Youths Championships.

After a short spell as a professional footballer he turned his attention to golf and began his professional golf career as a PGA Assistant at Banchory Golf Club under the watchful eye of Charles Dernie. After qualifying in 1997 he moved to Blairgowrie Golf Club where he spent three years as Head Assistant Professional.

In April 2001 he moved back to Aberdeenshire to work at the newly built Inchmarlo Golf Centre as the Head Teaching Professional. As his coaching skills became more evident he progressed to being the North East District coach for boys and girls and was recently appointed the North East Academy coach for the Scottish Golf Union. He continues to work with golfers with all levels of ability from beginners through to elite players, some of whom have achieved the top accolades in both the amateur and the professional game. Having worked with James Byrne, a winning Walker Cup player at Royal Aberdeen in 2011, Open Champion and Ryder Cup player Paul Lawrie, Andrew also coaches 2018 Curtis Cup Player Shannon McWilliam.
