Movies have always been a passion for me. Even when I was a child, I wanted to see movies that my grandparents wouldn't want me to see. Everything changed for me in 1990 when I sat down to watch the Academy Awards for the first time. I had a personal favorite going into the race and knew little to nothing about the awards themselves. Against odds that I was not aware of then, Driving Miss Daisy took home the trophy for Best Picture. I was ecstatic and it became my personal mission to study the Academy Awards and become a first rate prognosticator. In 1996, I founded The Oscar Guy, my personal website for the Academy Awards. Over time as I finished my studies in film, I began writing reviews in order to embellish my site. In 1997, I joined the Online Film Critics Society and have been a proud member ever since. In 2006, I was elected a governor of the Online Film Critics Society and am working on a number of projects that I feel will bring further prestige to the organization. I graduated from then Southwest Missouri State University (now Missouri State University) in 1999 with a BS in Communications/Mass Media. Through my studies, my intense love of movies grew and I have used much of that training to increase my filmic vocabulary and continue to work to increase my knowledge of historical contexts.
There are many movies that I enjoy but among my most beloved are Sunrise, Schindler's List, Citizen Kane, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
