André became editor of LondonWorld.com in January 2023, having previously edited the Ham&High, Islington Gazette, Hackney Gazette and Brent & Kilburn Times. Before that he ran titles in Devon - Exmouth Journal, Sidmouth Herald, Midweek Herald, North Devon Gazette - and spent a long period at the Surrey Advertiser, based in Guildford, where he worked his way up from trainee reporter to head of print. And before that he had a long-forgotten career in finance - the natural start for someone who grew up on Guernsey - while harbouring dreams of being a rock star.
André is a Spurs fan, for his sins, but lives in Islington, almost within earshot of Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium. He has previously lived in Kensal Green, Camden and Hackney.
With LondonWorld André wants to bring Londoners the news that matters to them - from public transport and active travel to crime on our streets - while maintaining the title’s social responsibility.
LondonWorld will be on the scene at strikes and protests so get in touch with your story.
Whether it is our environmental challenges or tackling deprivation in our communities, we want to shine a light on our city and those with power over it.
And on the side André maintains an interest in music and will be writing about the rock and pop music which is so central to the heritage of this beautiful and diverse city.
