The Recycled Pirate | life awareness & innovation is a Curaçao based initiative by Andy Kirchner.

After a life changing accident in 2012 he remained paralyzed from the waist down. He quickly realized that if he would want to walk again one day, he had to see what he still had and not what he had lost. In his struggle to find a new purpose for his life, he found a new, stronger and visionary version of himself. He took his time rehabilitating as a time to reflect and study to become a better version of him. Physically, mentally and spiritually he developed himself to one day be able to be of service to others. The set goal brought him on an unexpected journey.

Three years later, in 2015, his visualized business idea, 2ndLife Curaçao, won him the JCI IOBA Aspiring Creative Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. As an influencer and inspirator he’s realizing his dream. Andy Kirchner coaches, gives seminars and motivational speeches at schools and corporate events about his own life awareness tools on how to live more aware in this digital era and become a better version of you.
