I’m very much a late bloomer when it comes to my love of cinema. I took a career path about as far removed from it as you can think, but over the years I realized just how much film could affect me, and how exciting it was to explore and analyze it to the extent I do now. I’ve been writing reviews and discussion pieces since 2018, and now hope to take this relatively new path even further. My favorite genre is easily science fiction, as it opens the door to so many possibilities while still trying to ground itself to varying degrees depending on the story.
