Hi, I’m Andrew.
Founder at First Words / Forbes 30 Under 30 / Travelling the world
I want to live an extraordinary life.
I’m not sure what that means yet, but I’m on a mission to find out.
This site will document my mission: the wins, the losses and everything in between.
Age 16, I dropped out of school to start my first company through the Young Enterprise programme.
It failed…leaving me 6 weeks to self-study for my AS Level exams.
With YouTube as my teacher, I achieved a 98% average and offers to read economics at the London School of Economics (LSE) and Cambridge.
I completed my A Levels with 4 A*s and started my degree at LSE.
At LSE, I was elected President of the Entrepreneurs Society, graduated with the highest 2nd year mark out of 1400+ students and launched Kickstart London & Up Learn.
Two years later: Up Learn was featured in Forbes and I won the LSE Class Teacher Award!
I’m now travelling the world, learning everything I can: from salsa to hand-gliding, French to Mandarin…on the way to enlightenment ✌️
