All About Me
When people ask me what I do, I could not be more proud to exclaim “I’m a writer!” I am lucky enough to have made a professional career out of my biggest passion.
I've been writing in one form or another for over 15 years (with that journalism in media degree) and I am thankful for every second of it. People have told me many times that if you turn your hobby into your career - you'll end up hating your hobby. Well, I try to have a positive outlook on all things and I love both my hobby and my career.
When I was in first grade, I wrote my very first story. It was about a black and white Porsche that went "blasting" down the street. I still have this story, construction paper and all; when I feel discouraged with this industry I pull it out and remember that 5-year-old me was already becoming a creative individual and this is where I belong.
I currently reside on the East Coast, close to both NYC and Philadelphia. I have been a lover of film, television, comics, and of course reading since as long as I can remember. Remind me to tell you about my adventures with black and white television.
When I watch something, I become so emotionally involved that I feel as if I am one of the characters. This is the beauty of the media. It forces us to feel while at the same time taking our minds on wonderful journeys. We no longer watch TV or movies for entertainment only, we watch for meaning and knowledge as well.
I give most all new movies and television shows a chance, even if other critics have given horrible ratings. Remember that there are many creators behind the scenes, trying to make the best out of something from the first concept story board to the final product.
Creatives support other creatives.
My rule of thumb is to enjoy films and television for what it is whether it be a "popcorn flick" or a "deep visceral dive into the meaning of humanity." This doesn't mean I don't have opinions, because I do - BIG ONES. But I also try to find the best in everything.
