Andrew is the principal of Brooklyn Strategic. He has over two decades of experience in digital communications.
Before he launched Brooklyn Strategic, Andrew was the Managing Director of the New York office of Connections Media. This followed four years at Edelman, where he served as a Vice President in the Digital Public Affairs Group of its Washington, DC office. There he led a team devoted to engaging online allies, managing digital advocacy tools, and developing and maintaining social media platforms for leading public affairs and advocacy clients.
Andrew lives in Brooklyn with his wife Andrea Salvatore—an entrepreneur and advocate for the arts—and their children Henry and Maggie. He enjoys reading, biking, and running. He is an Adjunct Professor of digital marketing and communications at NYU, and he holds a BA from Dartmouth College in Philosophy and English.
Patrick provides daily tactical support to Brooklyn Strategic’s clients. Before joining Brooklyn Strategic, Patrick managed parish-wide communications and on- and off-line fundraising at the Church of Saint Paul the Apostle in Manhattan. He credits his time as a Specialist at the Apple Store on the Upper West Side as the source of his deep appreciation of the value of great customer service.
He is a working actor and improviser, appearing on stage and screen all around the city, including a monthly comedy show he hosts at the People's Improv Theater. Patrick is also an amateur photographer who can often be found taking promotional photos of other New York performers and their projects.
Patrick is often found rock climbing at Brooklyn Boulders or running in Prospect Park when he’s not playing his banjo. He moved to Crown Heights, Brooklyn in 2015 and it’s now his favorite place in the city. Patrick received his BA from Fordham University in 2012 in Theater.
