Born in 1964 in Birmingham of the West Midlands, UK. He began with following in the footsteps of his father in engineering; however Andrew had other ideas. He left to train in Karate with the KUGB/JKA. He did several years as a bodyguard for a high end security protection firm. Later he moved to working as a Technical consultant at Birmingham University.
Through all of this he has always had a passion for history and the period of Chivalry where fantasy, faith and warfare all came together and stories of King Arthur and the knights sparked his imagination. He began writing for D&D and then found himself collaborating with Ed Simbalist and Wilf Backhaus on the game Chivalry & Sorcery, with his long time friend and owner of Britannia Games Design, Stephen Turner.
After many thousands of hours of work in tabletop RPG design he is now the Director of Anderian Designs Ltd. and main force behind the products of Reedwater and the supporting adventures.
