And that’s why I’m here, to help you with all your questions in forms of Blog posts, Vlogs and even personal advice just for you and your specific career – see Counseling or Dollar Advice.
Who Am I?
My name is Andrea Martina and I’m… well I do lots of things. But my main career is in Acting and Film making. I’m also an Artist and an Entrepreneur (hence this website). I was born and raised in Lucerne, Switzerland and have been acting on stage and in short films, since I was 9 years old. My passion has always driven me so strongly, that nothing could stop me in pursuing my dreams. Many friends, family members and even strangers on the way asked me where I get the courage and inspiration from, considering I went to L.A. for the first time all by myself, without knowing anyone in the whole US, at the age of 16. Now, I never thought of myself being “brave”, I was just very adventurous and curious. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but that didn’t matter to me, why would something like “it’s going to take a lot of hard work, time and patience” stop me from doing what I love doing most?
So here I am, living and working in L.A. under an 01 Artist visa, doing what I dreamed of doing since I was a kid and I wouldn’t replace my life with any other – despite all the challenges and obstacles I have to overcome on a daily.

Going off of that number, I want to clarify that I am also just a normal human being with their own point of view like everyone else. But I can assure you, I’ve been working in this Industry professionally since 2010, trained all over the world in Switzerland, Germany, London and of course L.A., worked on countless projects and learned an innumerable amount of lessons, from which you can most definitely learn a lot.
