Purposeful and Passionate
From being a fit and active sheep farmer with a passion for bare-foot water skiing in summer and snow skiing in winter, Andrew’s life changed in an instant in October 2000 when a quad-bike accident shattered his spine and left him paraplegic. But far from being defeated by the enormous challenges he was immediately and continually faced with, fifteen years on Andrew says he is happier now than he was before the accident, and he’s achieved more than many able-bodied people – including being back on the ski slopes, doing what he loves most. Andrew’s motivational presentations have captivated audiences in New Zealand and overseas. His story is told with intelligence, insight, and matter-of-fact good humour, and his message is clear, positive and empowering: if you find the will, you’ll find the way!
