Andi Avery was born in New York, where she learned to give her unvarnished opinion on just about everything. After a promising childhood defined by an incorrigible book habit, and 4 years in an intensive acting and directing program, she dropped out of an all-girls private college after 8 months. She spent the next decade trying to assuage her guilt by obtaining as many odd certifications as possible as she tried to find her niche. The yoga teacher-cum-sommelier-cum-wildlife veterinary technician-cum-sex worker (sure, you can add a rim shot in there if you like)-cum-stuntwoman finally pulled her shit together in 2015 when she conceptualized a film based on her experiences in sex work. Leaving Charlie was shot in 2016 by a crew of 40 women & non-binary individuals. The narrative short has made rounds on the festival circuit, landing her 3 awards for her directing. Most importantly, it finally allowed her to utter the only statement that got a bigger eye-roll from Mom & Dad than her job as a stripper: “…but what I really want to do, is direct.”
