Biography:
It all started with Hitchcock. When I was a kid, my dad would always make me watch the first minutes of Vertigo, and also the third act of Close Encounters of the Third Kind (my favorite movie). I knew I wanted to express what I felt, and I started to write about movies. I haven't stopped since I was a teenager, and blogs have come and gone. Now, I'm the founder and editor of Screentology, a review site you won't want to miss.
