I fell in love with film as an art form when I was a teenager in the mid-90s and continue that love today. I attended the University of Pittsburgh and received my BA in Film Studies and later obtained my MaED from Argosy University. I’ve been writing film reviews off and on since the early 2000s, but regularly for since 2013.

My favorite genres are sci-fi, comedy and noir and I have a great affinity for classic Hollywood films of any genre, but I’ll watch anything. As Roger Ebert said: “No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough.”
