A self-proclaimed trainee architect and adventurer, originally from Lincolnshire, Andy had an illustrious career as a highly decorated door supervisor receiving commendation and recommendations for acts of bravery and calm under pressure from Northamptonshire’s chief of police. Turning his hand to business and martial arts, Andy started BST MMA, building up a very successful academy which still runs today. Moving on from the MMA world, Andy returned to his creative roots. He attended Boston College to study art and design where he graduated with distinction, a student of the year award and a fellowship award, the first of which to ever be awarded to a student in a creative discipline. He then studied Architecture at Northumbria graduating in 2017. After 6 months experience, we are very pleased to welcome Andy to the team.
