Andy has structured his life around his passion for fishing and the environment. He has been a keen angler from a young age, having fished small creeks in the high country of Victoria, to out deep off Port Phillip Bay Heads and everything in between.
Andy has a very strong understanding and passion of fire ecology and conservation management. He has 13 years’ experience in the Natural Resource Management industry, where he learnt fundamental skills in managing remnant and degraded grasslands and grassy woodland ecosystems in the northern parts of Melbourne. Andy has also spent time collaborating with traditional custodians on best practise, and giving Tafe and University talks helping pave the way for future generations of conservationists.
