FOUNDER / EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
After graduation, Andreas was trained in a BBDO network agency in Hamburg. Two and half years later, in 1991, he joined a production company and worked his way up from assistant to producer and creative consultant. After having supervised TVC productions in the United States, Mexico, Germany, and the United Kingdom among others, Andreas decided to relocate to Los Angeles in 1996 to start a production service and consulting company.
Between 1996 and 2009 he worked as an Executive Producer and Producer for agencies and production companies. Among those were international networks such as FCB, TBWA and small boutique agencies, such as Philipp und Keuntje in Hamburg. Andreas quickly made a name for himself as a producer for so-called difficult productions. Mostly, he would be hired for international productions transcending different cultures.
During this time he produced a series of more than 16 commercials for the IPO of Deutsche Post (DHL). During a period of 8 months (2000/2001) these films were produced on three continents (Germany, Italy, USA & China) with German celebrity Thomas Gottschalk (Wetten Dass..?) and advertising agency Jung von Matt. This was when Andreas traveled to China and shot with world-famous director Wolfgang Petersen (Academy Award Nominee - Das Boot) in and around Beijing for five days.
In 2006 Andreas met his future partner, Niko Tziopanos, when he worked as an Executive Producer at Motion Design Studio, Sehsucht. Later in 2008, he worked for the Chinese market producing the launch campaign of the new 2009 BMW 7 series for the Beijing-based agency, Interone, part of BBDO Worldwide.
In 2009 he joined forces with Niko to launch weareflink. Since then Andreas represents the producing backbone of FLINK.
