I am a published reviewer and sportswriter, but one of my main passions is writing about film. I gained this love of writing my senior year of high school when I wrote at length about Marvel’s Avengers and discussing its cultural relevance for the time. Since then, I have written many reviews on Letterboxd and the (now defunct) student newspaper at George Mason University called The Rival. My primary interests in movies include science fiction and animation.
