Andrew is a television presenter, motivational speaker, bushcraft and survival Instructor, adventurer and naturalist. He is best known the Bafta Cymru-Nominated ITV Wales series “Coast and Country”, which he has co-hosted since 2013.
Additionally, he has featured as a contributor and specialist expert on many television programmes including: Holidays at Home (BBC), Britains Favourite View (BBC), Time Team (Channel 4), Wales in Four Seasons (BBC), Griff Rhys Jones Welsh adventure (ITV), Warwick Davis Weekend Adventures (ITV), Spartacus, (The History Channel), Underground Britain, (BBC) and Coast (BBC).
Andrew’s interest in outdoor living and adventure started at a very young age while foraging for mussels with his grandfather, and later with his father who taught him how to catch mackerel and sea bass off the South Gower Coast from an ancient (and slightly leaky) canvas and wood kayak. These early experiences sowed the seeds of enthusiasm for a life of adventure, wilderness living skills, history, and love for the natural world.
At the age of 19 Andrew participated on a Raleigh International Expedition to Malaysia, where he had his first experience of living with the indigenous Orang Asli people of the Cameron Highlands.
Andrew is one of the UK’s leading Bushcraft and Survival instructors, founding his survival and bushcraft school Dryad Bushcraft in 2004. He specialises in training for individuals and groups in practical skills such as fire lighting, safe tool handling, water purification, natural navigation, wild food foraging and other wilderness survival and primitive living skills. Andrew is also the editor of the internationally distributed publication “Bushcraft and Survival Skills Magazine”.
