Native New Yorker and natural-born film lover. I earned a degree in journalism with a minor in film studies at the University of Georgia and studied film critique at the 75th Cannes Film Festival. I'm an expert on all things A24 and always keeping an eye out for the next round of up-and-coming filmmakers. You can usually catch me at the nearest film festival or whichever NYC theater is screening the latest foreign films.
