Ideas and commentary - but definitely no 'takes'.


As a thought leader Andrew confronts and discusses issues and ideas close to his heart - ranging from topical news stories to politics and public transport, communities, placemaking and movies. 


He is widely published across mainstream media including mamamia, Fairfax Media, News Corp Australia and on ABC The Drum. With the fast emergence of new media Andrew has taken his mainstream media skills to attract strong, responsive audiences on social channels Facebook and Twitter.


Andrew originated the hashtag #ThisIsAustralia to showcase the great images which succinctly capture the sometimes wonderful, sometimes confronting stories of Australia and Australians. With a sharp editorial eye Andrew selects the photographs that reflect our diversity, successes, triumphs and achievements at home and overseas in one image.


A selection of opinion pieces is published below.


An extensive archive of material is in development.
