Andrew grew up in Cambridgeshire and read History at the University of Leeds.  He obtained a Masters in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester and then joined Spink as an intern in 2011.  Shortly thereafter he transferred to the banknote department and proceeded to oversee its modernisation and expansion.  Working at Spink as Specialist and Business Manager alongside Barnaby Faull, Andrew consistently handled the very finest British and world banknotes, and quickly acquired an excellent general knowledge of the field.  He became an auctioneer in 2015 and has taken many prestigious sales including parts of the exceptional Bruce Smart Collection. In July 2018, Andrew accepted a new position as Head of Banknotes at DNW, and is proud to lead a modern and dynamic specialist team, focusing on exceptional client service and producing quality catalogues for collectors of all types of paper money.

Andrew is a member of the International Banknote Society and has given several talks on a variety of subjects including methods of grading paper money and one of his particular interests, post-Second World War military money.  Away from the paper money world, Andrew is an avid tabletop wargamer and a keen rock climber.
