About

Hi, I'm Andrew. 

I'm a digital campaigner, communicator, and a public and government relations practitioner.

Prior to founding Burns Strategic Communications, I was a senior communications advisor to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. I ran the New Zealand Labour Party's digital campaigns, engaging millions of New Zealanders online and building a formidable digital movement. I've also been involved with digital communications for campaigns in New Zealand and abroad, including Western Australia's state election, the UK Labour Party leadership elections, and New Zealand's Campaign for Marriage Equality, alongside working in more traditional communications contexts.

I now work for an agency called Point Blank Creative based in Vancouver and Ottawa, Canada. We're a full-service agency working with progressive and values-aligned organisations to achieve their goals. We work internationally too, so if you're after strategic support for your campaign in New Zealand or anywhere else, get in touch.
