Andrew became part of the Epilepsy Scotland team in August 2023 as Policy and Communications Manager.

Andrew joined having had over a decade of experience running the policy and public affairs functions of various organisations in Scotland, mostly in the third sector.

He is passionate about connecting the voices of people with lived experience to the decision-makers in the world of politics to affect real positive policy changes.

Andrew is a proud geek, a Star Wars fan, and a longtime Newcastle United fan. And if he is not conquering the world in one of his computer games you can find him rambling along one of the many walking trails dotted around Scotland.
