Curriculum vitae Mario M. Flaschentraeger
Live-communication Consultant | Conceptioner | Director

Since I was 14 years I have been working in the entertainment industry. The cornerstone was laid at the time a student internship in the cultural department of the City council of Frankfurt under the direction of nationally known director and politician, Prof. Dr. Hilmar Hoffmann. Thanks to my long-time mentor in the Culture Department Rudi Seitz (1930-2002) and later the director of the International dance theater Mousonturm Frankfurt, Dieter Buroch, should be out of the internship my passion and still ongoing appeal.

In the first years I went through various cultural institutions in Frankfurt, then followed as a stagehand and assistant (Bestboy) first experience in the music industry. Added at the beginning of the 80s came the role of rookie concert promoter and disc jockey, in one of Frankfurt's most fashionable night club. In parallel, the creation of a city known record store was at the Frankfurt University.
