Andreas Mink was born in 1958 in Waldshut, in southern Germany. Mink went to school in Baden-Baden and worked odd jobs, including a year at a Mercedes-Benz truck plant, to earn money to travel through the United States, Canada, Mexico and Jamaica in 1978.
Mr. Mink then studied history in Tübingen and Hamburg, where he became a journalist. He has worked in radio, television, magazines and newspapers — and was head of the media department for a German newsmagazine before coming to the United States in 1996 with his wife and daughter.
