My interest in film began at the age of 8, when my dad would take me and my twin brother to the movie theater regularly. After writing movie reviews for my high-school newspaper, I studied English and creative writing at Foothill College and acting at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. I've co-produced (alongside my brother) five short films and four feature-length films (including the mystery/drama "Table for Six"), and have been writing movie reviews professionally since 2001. I have won several awards from the Peninsula Press Club for a variety of reviews. My other interests include martial arts, literature, playing the drums and juggling.
