I always hate writing an “About Me” page because it comes off like I’m selling myself to others, which is the point of a post like this, I guess. I live in California (and no, I do not live near Disneyland, Hollywood, or anyplace south of San Francisco) and a college student. I recently obtained my Bachelor’s in English and am currently working on receiving my Masters (if you haven’t noticed I like reading and writing A LOT).
I also work as an entertainment writer. I write movie reviews for the fantastic Entertainment News International (www.enewsi.com). I spend a lot of time taking film classes and watching Turner Classics Movies, where I’ve grown to love and write this blog about classic films since 2011. I’m also the Historical Circuit columnist at Awards Circuit (www.awardscircuit.com). For the last year I worked as an intern for The Playlist. I’m also the new Associate Editor of ClassicFlix (www.classicflix.com).
A few of my favorite classic films are Singin’ in the Rain, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Splendor in the Grass. My favorite old actors include Marlon Brando, Cary Grant, William Powell, and Warren Beatty. My favorite classic film actresses are Natalie Wood, Marilyn Monroe and Veronica Lake. I’m a huge Hollywood book reader; if it’s about old Hollywood I’ll read it no matter how legit it is.
In terms of more current movies, I love Dirty Dancing, Gladiator, Almost Famous, and American Psycho…the list goes on and on. If you have anything you want to know about me just ask. I started this blog to gush about film and hopefully intrigue more people to watch older movies. You have no idea how many times I want to slap my head when people say “I won’t watch that, it’s in black and white.”
