Always taking pride in my writing, I often wrote creative short stories in high school. However, when college came around, I put down the pen to pursue a degree in Healthcare Management from Georgetown University.
I have since relinquished stethoscope and again picked up the pen to follow my dream of becoming a screenwriter. With a few screenplays under my belt, I continue to read and learn to hone my technique, always working on the next great story.
Born in 1985 and raised on Long Island with New York City in my backyard, I have taken every opportunity to watch as many movies being filmed as I can. Now that I currently live there, I volunteer on film sets to learn the nuances of filmmaking.
I enjoy all movie genres, but I find that the true value of any film lies in its foundation: the screenplay. I agree that the value of a good screenplay is brought to life through quality acting. But we have all heard horrible lines in otherwise acceptable movies from A-list actors that make us think, “did they really just say that?” So whether it is a Michael Bay explosion-fest, or a Fincher thriller, I enjoy analyzing the script before anything else. Good acting comes naturally when there is substance to each character and dialogue we can relate to.
You will often see me sticking to certain genres in my analyses, namely action or comedy. Like any other 23-year-old male, I love a good explosion. And there are always those comedies that we all quote which deserve proper recognition.
I try to instill a little humor in all of my analyses. Sometimes subtle, sometimes not. But if you appreciate the same movies I do, I think you will agree with my insights and agree with my take on them.
