Andy studied music from an early age and took his passion and talent for it into his professional career in the theatre, although he chose to practice the technical art of Sound Engineering rather than taking to the stage. Having worked in regional theatres such as The Sheffield Crucible and Chichester Festival Theatre, Andy progressed to the West End as a sound engineer on Miss Saigon and later Head of Sound on the Edinburgh production of Les Miserables.
Andy ran his own multimedia development partnership for over 10 years providing technical and creative services to the corporate events market including graphic design, video production and of course sound engineering and composing. He has written scores for short films, corporate videos, theatre productions and multimedia products but has chosen to specialise in large scale conceptual works in both live and recorded formats.
Writing has always been a passion for Colin, and when he retired after thirty years with the Metropolitan Police he decided to finally put his heart and soul into it.

In addition to writing the screenplays Colin co-produced each of the films.
In 2007 Colin was employed as the police advisor for the custody office scenes on the set of the BBC drama Criminal Justice starring Ben Wishaw.
