His most recent roles were resort manager and general manager of Soneva Kiri Thailand and Soneva Jani Maldives respectively – resorts renowned for their commitment to sustainability.
Andrew brings with him over 30 years of hospitality experience having commenced his career in culinary arts, working his way up to the executive chef position, then later transitioning into hotel operations overseeing the food and beverage operations.
Andrew’s profession has taken him all over the world and he prides himself on having worked for highly respected brands that include Sandy Lane Hotel in Barbados, Marco Polo Niccolo in Chengdu, Raffles Hotel in Dubai and many more. He identifies himself as a true global citizen.

His favorite quote “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious” by Albert Einstein certainly leads him to his next adventure with Six Senses.
