Not one who believes in straight lines, Avery took the long, curvy road to screenwriting. Traveling from their humble Michigan roots growing up on 8 Mile (yes, THAT 8 Mile), Avery ventured into the Army as a cook, through a short stint as a journalist, into graduate school (majoring in Rhetoric and Composition Theory), then landing a 15 year career as a college-level English instructor, teaching students about writing, communications and Gothic Lit. After coming out as queer (AMAB Gender Nonconforming bisexual) to their schools, Avery decided to follow their passion for writing LGBTQ-positive sitcoms. They are a fellow in the 2020-21 Writers Guild Foundation Veterans Writing Project.
Short Version: Sarcastic, queer AF, 40+, AMAB gender nonconforming, disabled vet with a gift for thinking light years outside of the box.
