      Tomatometer-approved critic

      I am a screenwriter and film producer who recently launched my own production company, set upon lifting marginalized, talented artists and creating a platform for real jobs for those artists. I am an outspoken advocate for social justice online; feminism, disability rights, LGBTQ rights, race and religious equality. As I've been building my company I've been using my voice to lift unknown talent through my reviews. Nothing feels greater to me than to help an artist begin to realize their dreams.
