When I was five-years-old my dad took me and my little brother to see “Jaws” on a Sunday afternoon in Port Washington, New York. It scared me beyond belief! That night I slept in a little ball because I was afraid if I put my legs out the shark would bite them off, and was certain the blue carpet in my room would turn to water while I slept and the shark would get me then. Little did I know that while I lied there in my bed terrified, a seed had been planted.

I wrote my first full length screenplay when I was fifteen-years old, a version of “A Nightmare on Elm Street 3”. New Line Cinema did not use this screenplay for their third installment to their famous franchise, but they were very impressed by my work. So much so, that they agreed to keep reading any future screenplays I wrote without an agent and they even gave me a production assistant job once I got to college on “Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III”. I later graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Film.


Answering a Career Builder add in 2009 I became the West Palm Beach Movie Examiner writing for I would go to Thursday night Midnight shows of new movies and then go home and write my review to the wee hours of the morning. Paying my dues as a film critic got me recognized by my publisher to feature me in a commercial that played in theaters across the state and extended my territory making me the West Palm Beach & Miami Movie Examiner. The Florida Film Critic’s Circle saw fit to invite me to become a member of their organization in 2015.

In 2016 I moved on to bigger and better things by beginning to write for, sponsored by Pepsi. I could no longer be an “Examiner” so I was then anointed THE MOVIE KNIGHT! When 2020 started I was voted to become the Vice-Chair of the FFCC. I am now finally venturing out on my own with I have a reputation of being a harsh critic at times and I dabble in filmmaking on my own when I can. Perhaps one day another critic will be ripping apart one of my own films. Until then, welcome! Always know any movie review I write will always be spoiler free.

Today “Jaws” is my favorite movie.
