I am a long time film fan currently trying my best to combine my love of cinema with my passion for writing. I live in small-town Ohio and teach high school language arts and a film class! When I’m not watching movies (or grading papers), I’m hanging out with my dogs, watching football with my family, or getting into deep philosophical conversations with my friends. Oh, and I’m always drinking coffee.
