2020: End of the Line - Annie (nominiert)
Andy Short grew up just outside Boston and sadly did not inherit the wicked Boston accents of his parents. He graduated with a degree in Theatre Education from Emerson College. He has spent his career working at the intersection of education, theatre, and addiction. His work has always been informed by identity. Currently he is the Executive Director of a theatre company that hires actors in recovery to perform plays about addiction in schools. As a gay man in recovery from addiction Andy understands how personal narrative and mission can combine to create change in relationships and community. This is the defining theme of his work and career. He is a 2019 recipient of Wayside Youth Coalition's Community Spirit award and the winner of the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network's 2019 Excellence Award in the Young Professional category. Andy currently lives in Dorchester, MA with his coffee maker and bicycle.
