Biography:
I am the co-founder and Assistant Editor of The Lamplight Review (previously The Nerd Repository) and co-host of its podcast Drinks & Discourse. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2002 and currently reside in Tempe, AZ where I took my life-long obsession with nerd culture to help build our brand. Through the growth of the site I've attended multiple large-scale events under press credentials such as San Diego Comic-Con where I have interviewed stars of TV and Film. On top of setting up interviews and managing of writers who submit content, I continue to review both TV and Film on a weekly basis for The Lamplight Review.

3/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) A surprising amount of humor served with a heaping of 90s nostalgia, but suffers from a less-than-perfect origin story. - The Lamplight Review EDIT

3/5 37% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) The beasts are once again fantastic, but the rest of the film is a dark, slow-moving prelude to war. - The Lamplight Review EDIT
