IT Lead, Information Security

Johnson & Johnson

New York, NY


Andrew is currently responsible for assessing Johnson & Johnson’s mission-critical lab, manufacturing, and warehouse locations for their adherence to security policies and applicable legal and regulatory requirements, as well as for managing risk-mitigation plans to address any gaps identified. Previously, Andrew has held roles at Johnson & Johnson ranging from Enterprise Vulnerability Management for public-facing web assets, to Reliability Engineering for IT systems that support the Johnson & Johnson global supply chain.

In addition to his core responsibilities at Johnson & Johnson, Andrew also plays a leadership role in an annual J&J Consumer, Inc. marketing campaign known as Care with Pride, acting as the primary liaison between J&J and three nonprofit organizations (The Trevor Project, Family Equality Council, and PFLAG). In this capacity, he has helped to shape the engagement between J&J and these organizations, and has ensured that all involved parties realize the maximum benefit from the partnership.

Andrew recently graduated from Princeton University, where his senior thesis explored the intersection of social media and bullying in populations of middle school students. While attending Princeton, he had the opportunity to pursue internships at the Federal Trade Commission (where he studied the security practices of mobile applications marketed to children), and the Florida Office of the Attorney General (where he assisted in gathering evidence to support the prosecution of cyber criminals). He grew up in a combination of South-Central Michigan and Northeastern Florida, and has also lived in Irvine, California, and various towns in New Jersey. He and his partner now live in New York City.
