Andrew is a clinical scientist who has worked mainly in the pathology testing part of healthcare in various parts of the world but always living in cities.

Some 10 years ago, a partial move to the country, about 80 kms north-east of Perth has given him a new respect for the environment and awareness of all the threats that it faces.

This includes excessive land clearing by the Main Roads Department to build roads that are way beyond the engineering that is required to improve safety.

He convenes the Safe and Scenic Toodyay Roads campaign which is trying to conserve some of the environmental value and scenic beauty of Toodyay Road before it is all destroyed for the supposed benefits of reaching Toodyay from Perth 5 minutes less than the current travel time!
