Andrea Flader (aka Darth Flader) comes to Find Familiar Spirits as a Project Manager following a rich fifteen-year career in the entertainment industry, most notably as a Production Coordinator. She has served in that leadership role for fan favorites including AMC’s The Walking Dead, Marvel’s WandaVision and Ms. Marvel, and MGM’s Till. She likes to say the entertainment industry forged her in fire, but also believes that character refinement is never finished.

Alongside film and television, Andrea is also a huge nerd who has recently veered into content creation with her partner Bill to form The Geek Garage, a YouTube channel focusing on pop culture and fandom-based builds, shenanigans, and travel. Her current role at Find Familiar Spirits is her maiden voyage into the spirits industry and she couldn’t be more excited to join such a talented group of individuals in this quest to cultivate community through two of her favorite things: whiskey and storytelling.

She is a true Midwesterner at heart, hailing from the great mid-Michigan. Though you will find her in Los Angeles at times, she calls Atlanta her home. She and her partner Bill plan to live in Italy one day with their dog Archer, so make sure to check her address before sending her holiday cards. Her favorite drink (other than an IPA) is a classic scotch on the rocks with a heavy-handed pour of great company.
