Andrew was raised in the family of Gloria and Henry Jarecki, who was a psychiatrist, entrepreneur and philanthropist, alongside three brothers of which Eugene is an author and documentary filmmaker, and Nicholas is a director and producer.

In 1989, Andrew Jarecki co-founded Moviefone, an American-based, interactive telephone service focused on giving information and movie listings. In the beginning, the company covered New York City and Los Angeles areas only, but under the lead of Andrew Jarecki as its CEO, Moviefone rapidly expanded its reach across the entire USA. In 1999, AOL Inc., global mass media corporation bought Moviefone for $388 million, providing a significant basis for Andrew Jarecki’s net worth.

Andrew Jarecki’s musical career officially began in 2000, when alongside J. J. Abrams, he co-wrote “New Version of You”, the theme song for the television drama series – Felicity. This venture has certainly positively impacted Andrew Jarecki’s wealth.

The very first efforts towards filmmaking Andrew Jarecki made was in 2003, when he completed an HBO documentary film about family issues – “Capturing the Friedmans”. The movie depicts the 1980s investigation of Arnold and Jesse Friedman, accused of child molestation. It has won 18 international rewards including Academy Awards nominations and winning of the New York Film Critics Circle Awards as well as the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival for 2003.

In 2010, Andrew Jarecki produced “All Good Things” – a crime romantic drama featuring Kirsten Dunst, Ryan Gosling and Frank Langella in the main roles, inspired by the life of Robert Durst, a millionaire and real estate heir of NY City mogul Seymour Durst. Subsequently in the same year, Andrew produced “Catfish”, a documentary movie about a young man who romantically bonds with unknown women via social networks. The eponymous 2013 TV show, reality documentary focused on revealing lies and truths of online dating, airing on MTV and also produced by Andrew Jarecki. All these engagements have certainly contributed to his overall net worth.

Andrew Jarecki refocused his attention and camera on Robert Durst one more time, in 2015, when filming the HBO documentary series “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst”.

All these achievements have significantly increased Andrew Jarecki’s overall net worth.
