Dave J. Andrae was born on the Autumnal Equinox of 1979 in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, where he grew up. He now lives in Florida. Andrae is a
multidisciplinary artist and writer with an emphasis on film. He
holds a BFA in Film from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and
is an alumnus of the Berlin International Film Festival's Berlinale
Talents program. Some of his films include Robert on His Lunch Break,
The Plants Are Listening, Self-Important Empirical Film #3, with
, and Fire in the Neighborhood. A jack of all trades,
Andrae has played atypical music in several bands and side projects,
including Leila M. & Tired of Triangles and Astronaut Ice Cream Headache.
His high school record label, Beeshu Records, was the first imprint other
than Hospital Productions to issue a recording from noise artist Prurient,
now quite established but then just starting out. In late 2020, Andrae
will release his debut novel, The Friends of Allan Renner, on the
Florida-based Kaji-Pup Press. Andrae is an avid film watcher, stand-up
comedy fan, dog lover, and amateur cyclist. He doesn't take himself
too seriously.
