Andrew is an adjunct lecturer at Carey who co-teaches Baptist Churches and A History of the Gospel in Aotearoa. Andrew is aiming to begin doctoral work in 2021, studying the work of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. His research and teaching interests lie in the intersection of systematic and public theology, seeking to use the insights and resources of systematics to speak and interact with lived realities, social theory, and history. Andrew lives with his friends and neighbours in Māngere and, alongside his fiancé Steph, is an active member at Māngere Baptist Church.
