Biography:

Born in Waco, Texas, I have always had a love for movies. The earliest films I remember seeing are "Grease" and "Grease 2." I was taken to a movie theater for the first time at the age of 9 (I was a late bloomer!). It was the summer of 1993, and the film was "Jurassic Park." I saw dinosaurs. I did not develop my true passion for movies until the age of 13. It was all due to one film. "Citizen Kane," perhaps? No. "City Lights"? Hardly. "It's a Wonderful Life"? I don't think so. No, it was actually the fantabulous, 1956 camp classic B-thriller "The Bad Seed." Through this movie, I was introduced to the wonders of filmdom, and I have never looked back. Throughout high school, I watched as many movies as I could, from classical Hollywood movies to silent cinema to foreign films. I acquired a basic, but promising, cinema vocabulary and a deep interest in flim analysis. I graduated from Baylor University in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications and a minor in English. I am currently a graduate student in the Communications Department at Baylor. I have been a reviewer for DVDReview.com since May 2006.
