Andy Schindler


Born in Kansas City, Missouri during one of the worst icestorms anyone can remember, Andy Schindler came into this world with guns a'blazin'. Literally. To say that baby Andy had a gas problem would be extremely generous. In fact, he was sending a well-seasoned veteran crew of nurses away screaming. Since the beginning, Andy has been full of hot air.

Though the hospital staff turned him away, his mother has loved him since day one. His papa, too. Not bad. Through careful nurturing and with a steady diet of GI Joes, Coca Cola Classic, and video games, Andy used his formative years to be somewhat of a counter-culture connoisseur. Or, as others lovingly put it, a huge nerd.

His first written work was a fictional account of a space adventurer named Seymour Butts, who traveled the universe avoiding capture from aggressive aliens. He has been writing truly magnificent and artistic think-pieces like that one ever since.

After graduating from the University of Kansas (2006) with a degree in Film Studies, Andy quickly realized that the film industry is an unforgiving destructor of souls. He slinked into the corporate world, but he has maintained a true love of writing and film.

Recently married to the girl of his dreams and enjoying his days with his daughter and two dogs, he hopes to live out the rest of his existence as a full-time writer.
