Andrey Potekhin or “The Russian Dude”. They say, that when he was born he created a generator which used the energy of his scream to power the hospital. Future Lions didn’t exist at that time, unfortunately.
His strength is digital advertising and production. There are rumours that he is a nice writer too. At least, that’s what his dad said when he received Andrey’s e-mail with a request to join Miami Ad School Europe.
“The Russian Dude” has a bachelor’s degree in management. As he wrote in his little digital diary, he did it to get some skills for being CD in a few years. No one saw that diary.
He spent one year travelling around Europe for his internships. Soon he is going to publish 3 volumes of jokes about Russia that he has collected during that time.
When he was young, he used to be a football player. Well, at least he can prove it with this Nike commercial that he took part in.
What is he going to do next? Well, he is Russian. He keeps this as a secret written on the Bottle of vodka hidden somewhere in Siberia and protected by the bears who are playing on the little guitars. But that's what we know for sure: he will bring a new wave and spirit into his future agency and will work his ass off to make his agency successful. That much we know.
