I began writing about film while attending Monroe Middle School where I wrote for the school paper The Monrovian. At that time I got into a dispute with a fellow student over the River Phoenix film Silent Tongue. I have been pissing people off over movies ever since. In order to escape the typical movie review, I try to incorporate useless information about my own life.
I work as a mental health therapist for individuals who are under the jurisdiction of the Psychiatric Security Review Board where I teach a weekly film group, Through the Looking Glass: Mental Health Through Film. I hope this blog does not suck.
