I started reviewing movies as a hobby back in the late '90s. In 2003, I had my first review of the "Freaky Friday" remake published in the Erie Times-News. From there, I became my hometown newspaper's go-to teen movie critic for their written-by-teens section, Fresh Ink. As I concurrently studied film at Pennsylvania State University and earned my Bachelor of Arts in 2010, I always kept my writing skills spick and span, going to the movie theater as much as possible and renting from the now-defunct Blockbuster.
To this day, I'm a member of the Online Film Critics Society and a contributing writer at Horror Obsessive, a sister site to 25YL. If you can keep up, a batch of reviews of nationwide and limited new releases are posted every week.
Now, what are you waiting for? Go see a movie!
