He started his career at digital radio station BBC Radio 1Xtra, before he was headhunted by Myspace.com to help launch its UK arm in Marketing and Content. His extensive work in community development and digital marketing led to his inclusion in the Guardian newspaper's 2007 'Minority Report', a shortlist of the Top 30 most important ethnic minority contributors to the British media. Andrew's continued success for MySpace was again noticed the following year, when he became the only entrant to make it into the list for both Media Week's '30 under 30' (a rundown of the industry's younger and most talented media individuals in the UK) and Broadcast magazine's 'Hot Shots' (a selection of media insiders tipped for future success).
