Raised by a Topgun Marine fighter pilot and a middle school special education teacher, Andrew was always driven to find meaningful work, solve interesting problems and help others do the same in an effort to make the world a better and safer place.
His love for computers started in college and after spending several years providing tech support in the energy and financial sectors, he achieved his MCSE certification. This led to his first information security job supporting a migration to active directory. Andrew then went on to champion, design and implement an automated compliance and vulnerability management program.
Andrew has been developing and leading incident response, malware analysis, threat hunting and digital forensics services for the past 18 years in critical infrastructure financial organizations.
He currently holds GREM, GCFA, GDAT, GNFA and CISSP certifications and serves as an Incident Response Senior Manager at a large financial organization.
