In late 1998, I found myself to be a nervous wreck in the wonderful city of Los Angeles. I would go to the cinema twice or so a week, (usually) wasting money, skipping homework and having to put up with my parents' doubts. I desperately needed to convey my emotions! But I couldn't, so I became a film critic instead. I gave myself a reason to see what is now 3 or 4 films per week. Critics like Michael Dequina helped me move up the ranks, and in January 2000 I started a website called Picture Show (http://pictureshow.8m.com), which I share with 3 other wonderful young critics. I also am entertainment editor and resident film critic at L.A. publication Boiling Point. I love to write, but my real aspiration is filmmaking. I am currently directing a short film called "Yellow Brick Road", starring Robert Coppola Schwartzman ("Virgin Suicides"), Max Goldblatt ("My Giant") and fellow OFCS-member Michael Dequina. I am honored to be in the OFCS.
