Andreas Heim

Andreas Heim is from the small town of Hattenhofen, close to Stuttgart, in Germany, a center of German car engineering. Originally intending to become a professional soccer player, his education took him into the area of media studies and programming. After creating an interactive CD-ROM, his focus shifted from film and video to interactive media. His school required him a six-month internship, which brought him to Smashing Ideas where being a soccer-playing-and-beer-drinking German intern was highly respected. He had so much fun in Seattle that he extended his stay to one year, before deciding to stay permanently. Andreas currently works on all kinds of cutting-edge digital media projects, including bringing Flash to devices. He enjoys his time outside of work playing soccer and snowboarding.
