Director, writer and producer Andy Wachowski was born in 1967 in Chicago and is the son of Lynne, a nurse and painter and Ron, a businessman. Andy was educated at Kellogg Elementary School in Chicago, before moving on to Whitney Young High School. After graduating from high school, he attended Emerson College in Boston, but dropped out.

Andy teamed up with his older sibling Larry (now Lana Wachowski) and began working on films. Their first script was optioned, and formed the basis for the film Assassins (1995). The Wachowski's went on to make their directorial debut with the self-written Bound (1996), which was well received. They followed this with the smash-hit The Matrix (1999) and went on to produce two successful sequels, The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003).

Other projects include scripting and producing the cult hit V for Vendetta (2005), a live action version of a Japanese anime series, Speed Racer (2008) and the ambitious epic Cloud Atlas (2012).
