Born in Poughkeepsie, NY, educated at Cal Berkeley, and currently residing in the great state of Texas, early on I developed a fanatical devotion to both computers and the movies. Naturally, my talents led me to my role as an online film critic. I started publishing reviews on the website Cinematter
in 1995. My reviews are also published monthly in Hilton Head's Current Diversions newspaper.A member of the OFCS since early 1997, I built the OFCS website (mostly by hand) in 1998, and have been serving as the group's web administrator since then. On April 1, 1999, I was elected as part of the first Governing Committee of the OFCS, and one year later was reelected to the post.
