For the last 25 years Andy, has worked in animation in the UK as animator, writer, director, producer, educator and storyboard artist. He began his animation career as assistant to the late John Halas where he learned his craft and after a period freelancing for London companies including the Walt Disney studio and a stint on the Teenage Ninja Turtles TV series, Andy directed the animation on a number of kid’s animation series including Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids and created the adult series Beastly Behaviour.
In 1997, Andy formed a studio to produce animation for the internet, and was the first UK creator to have an animated series on the web. After several short form comedy series for BBC3 and CBBC, Andy joined Aardman Animations in 2004 to direct Planet Sketch for CITV and Teletoon. Andy has since directed animation on three BAFTA nominated TV shows, and recently worked with CBBC on the cult kids show OOglies, which also received a BAFTA nomination.
