Biography:
Constantly busy,busy,busy. That's me, I have a love for movies and Hollywood since I was 5. I may not be the greatest writer in the World and you may not agree with my opinion, but hopefully you'll find something you enjoy from it. In the mean time I love animals and am a volunteer for the Humane Society and when I am not busy with that I work full time in a surgeons office. In the evenings I get to enjoy the wonderful work offered through the film industry and have come to find that this is a new hobby I enjoy very much. Other than that I love to TRAVEL!!
