Before the agency was founded, Andreas graduated from the higher technical college for mechanical engineering in Wiener Neustadt and graduated as a career officer of the Austrian Armed Forces 2014 as a lieutenant in leadership support. After using it in the federal states of Salzburg and Vienna, he founded a SaaS start-up, from which NDA GmbH emerged in 2018 due to increased customer requests. Andreas is an entrepreneur and passionate online marketer in the field of strategy and conception. He advises customers on site to identify potential for marketing their products and services. Specialising in digitisation opportunities, he aims to support those who want to benefit from digitization.
Andreas combines the technical and economic view on digital projects and is responsible for the quality assurance of all internal and external projects.
Always looking for new challenges, Andreas has found his way into agency life. During his technical education combined with economic aspects at the University of applied science Wiener Neustadt, Andreas worked for an IT investment consulting company, where he acquired the basic knowledge of programming for insurance solutions. During his master's degree, this allowed him to work for a German insurance company in the area of sales process management, which he did not miss. Thus, the longtime companion football was turned its back and the shoes were exchanged with a keyboard. With this experience and new friendships Andreas returned to Austria and worked on various insurance and SAP projects. He could spend more time in the mountains and pursue his passion for freeriding, where he leaves his marks in the deep snow every year. The urge to work creatively has always been present in Andreas and now it was time for him to pursue this chapter professionally. With a further education the journey into agency life began. Today, Andreas combines his experience with creative approaches to solutions and coordinates projects within the company. The belief in team play is not only evident in the projects, but also in playing basketball, where assists are just as important as baskets to win a game.

After many years of working in the television media sector, where he was involved in a wide range of activities related to film production, Tobias decided to apply his skills in the online sector of digital marketing.
In addition to his apprenticeship as a technician, he discovered his creative streak and it was not long before he acquired his first camera. Through an insatiable thirst for knowledge and self-discipline, he was able to quickly acquire the knowledge of photography and the handling of the camera, recognized the connection between light and shadow and the eye for the essential. Whether Innsbruck, Linz, Vienna or Berlin, no renowned photographer was left out to get valuable tips and tricks for coaching sessions and workshops. The hobby photographer, who took countless souvenir photos during his holidays, has become a professional, who besides landscape and architecture focuses on portrait, product and event photography. Meanwhile, the camera has become his faithful companion, whether training with a dog, playing tennis or hiking - he is always looking for the perfect moment to be captured photographically. The right equipment for this task, as well as his own studio, which was moved from his own living room to the agency, was of course not to be missed and so he established himself as a serious partner for photography and image editing. As a house and yard photographer he is responsible for the creative visualization of the client's wishes in the agency.

He grew up in a quiet place in the district of Neunkirchen and completed his Higher school certificate in 2017 and saw his future in the university. After completing community service as a paramedic, which brought with it a lot of experience on a human level, student life was not long in coming and so the teacher training at the University of Vienna began. But he soon realized that his interests did not lie in perfecting his knowledge of past stories and German studies. A case in the family, where the employer deliberately exploited his position illegally and such abuse was not compatible with his morals, aroused in him the curiosity to become aware of his rights so that he would not have to simply let such events take place and apply the acquired knowledge, among other things, in everyday situations. The additional pursuit of a business education led to the study of business law. To prove and further strengthen his interpersonal strengths and logical thinking, his further path led him to the sales department of a digital agency in Wiener Neustadt, where experience is to be gained for his future life as a lawyer.

Balazs has always had a keen interest in marketing, although his early experiences were not exactly encouraging: At 23 years of age, he found himself Director of Marketing in Budapest at a corporate project, without relevant qualifications and weekly changing expectations from the project's initiators. In absence of opportunities to grow, he turned his attention to another lifetime passion: horses.
A lot of learning, steel banging and business development followed, but as a result he succeeded in completely re-booting the ailing industry of farriery (professional horseshoeing) in Hungary with the help of only a handful of others, gained experience working in Austria, instructed farrier apprentices in Hungary and Turkey; and collaborated with several veterinary surgeons in rehabilitating injured equine athletes worldwide. As an eternal seeker of progress and novelty, he moved to New Zealand in 2003.
He continued to build a successful career in orthopaedical horseshoeing and consulting in farriery there, but he has also returned to two of his other passions: entrepreneurship, and storytelling.
To build a solid foundation of knowledge of these subjects, Balazs attended university while working full time. He earned himself a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and later a Master of Business Administration in his new hometown, Auckland. He is also currently completing his Thesis for his second Master, in English and New Media Studies at AUT University (Auckland). His research topic is the discursive construction of personal brands on LinkedIn, where he investigates how people use discourse as a social practice and a tool for advancement with the latest linguistic software tools. He does the final stage of the work remotely from Austria, where his heart brought him back again, after nearly 30 years.
Balazs is passionate about the role of language and storytelling in business, marketing, and leadership. He feels himself at home in the company of people of any age, gender, or cultural background. He refers to himself as the only Hungarian Kiwi living in Austria and loves to connect people from around the globe to create new opportunities in business, science, or education - for all of us.
Horses, dogs, cats, children, and crazy people seem to like him, and he is quick to connect with people from high tech and traditional industries and business in general. However, he has a hard time refusing profiteroles or prolonged conversations about nearly any subject. He also drinks way too much coffee while working.
