A New Zealand Ultramarathon runner living here in Brisbane, Australia. Andrew has been running ultras for more than 10 years. 

Some of his running achievements include:

A 2200km run of the length of New Zealand
A 1000km run from Brisbane to Sydney
Top 10 220km multi stage Lycian Way Ultramarathon - Turkey
Top 10 220km multi stage Kalahari Augrabies Ultra - South Africa
Top 5 120km Larapinta Trail stage race - Australia
Top 5 220km multi stage List Island Ultra - Fiji

Outside of running Andrew is also a licenced paragliding pilot, scuba diver, parachute packer and indoor skydiving instructor. He also runs a travel/adventure blog and has over 80,000 followers across his social media channels.

Andrews biggest achievement through running was when he ran the entire length of New Zealand in 2010 averaging almost two full marathons a day for 28 days (including one rest day).

In 2012 he ran 1000km from Brisbane to Sydney to raise funds and awareness for animal welfare. Despite this being a shorter run than his NZ adventure this is the one he's most proud of as it was for a cause close to his heart.

Andrew was great with his time and engaged with the students. It's great when you hear from students mentioning they are inspired to get back into their sport they were once involved with. It's worth it for the one or two students to get that fire for sport back in their belly.
