Biography:

Andy is a performance poet and entertainer, author and former business communicator who has two artificial limbs, a wonderful wife, three fine children, a whippet called Tamba and a tabby called Toby. (He also had two feisty chickens until Basil Brush made their acquaintance).

Andy engages live and digital audiences with his poetry and related commentary; plenty of light-hearted humour ... and a smattering of history. And once a year the bionic bard and his long-suffering spouse make a trip to West Africa to support and encourage victims of trauma.
