Life drives and passions

Being both prolific at deal making and fathering 7 children, downtime is somewhat of a luxury for Andrew. However, when not at work or enjoying his family, Andrew enjoys both shooting and rugby, albeit his rugby playing days are long over and he enthusiastically spectates from a safe distance.
