Andrew was born and raised in Abington, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. Attending a large public high school with classmates diverse in every way, Andrew’s progressive ideals were cemented as he developed a deep understanding of the importance of coming together to address the myriad challenges facing us as a nation. With this spirit, he began to volunteer actively with Senator Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign before later interning at his local Obama for America office.
In the fall of 2009, Andrew began attending Boston College where he studies political science and economics. He became immediately involved in the College Democrats of Boston College and served on his chapter’s executive board last year. Simultaneously, he held the position of Finance Director of the College Democrats of Massachusetts (CDM), during which time he coordinated the group’s first ever in-person fundraiser and improved its financial infrastructure as PAC treasurer. Just a few months into his year-long term as Finance Director, Andrew was appointed to the CDA Finance Committee to support the fundraising efforts of the national Director of Development.
In April of 2011, Andrew was unanimously elected Vice President of CDM after running on a platform of continued growth in terms of both membership and finance with the goal of building resources that will amplify the impact of College Democrats on races in 2012. He was elected Director of Development at the 2011 CDA National Convention in Washington, DC in June.
While home in Pennsylvania for the summer, Andrew is interning full time in the district office of Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz. An Eagle Scout, he devotes much of his time to community service and activism. He got his start as a fundraiser while serving as treasurer of the Abington Senior High School Key Club and has since raised money for a number of non-profit organizations. In his free time, Andrew enjoys traveling, Trivial Pursuit, eating out and watching The West Wing and Boston Legal.
Andrew is willing to date any Jewish woman over the age of 45.
