Writer

My professional journey into writing began by accident.

During my sophomore year of college, I used my personal Twitter profile to promote a journalism project. This tweet caught the attention of my university's social media director, and he went on to create an internship specifically for me with our Office of Marketing and Communication.

Since then, nearly every position I've held has involved content creation in some way. I have worked with organizations such as Life is a Funny Scene, HoneyGood.com, the Chicago Tribune's Trib Nation, Matthew Lew, Cappex.com, G2 Crowd, The Movie Buff, Cultured Vultures and the Playlist.

I look forward to continuing to learn and grow in my journey to becoming a stronger writer!

Netflix And A New Kind of Rom-Com | Cultured Vultures

Here's a formula we all know better than any algebraic equation: what do you get when you take one unlikely couple, add a few zany shenanigans, and multiple the relationship drama by about 10? The romantic comedy. The genre has been a vital part of the fabric of American cinema for the 40 years or so.

I Am Mother Movie Review (2019) | The Movie Buff

"I Am Mother" is a movie that was almost great. The film itself has a simple enough premise. In a post-apocalyptic world, a sentient android living in a bunker referred to as "Mother" (voiced by Rose Byrne) grows an embryo in an artificial womb. Soon enough, "Daughter" (Clara Rugaard) is born.

Always Be My Maybe Movie Review (2019) | The Movie Buff

Netflix's latest installment in their determined effort to revitalize the rom-com is "Always Be My Maybe." While it offers nothing innovative to the genre, it is sprinkled with memorable gems along the way. Ali Wong and Randall Park star as Sasha and Marcus, respectfully - childhood friends who hook up once and lose touch for 16 years.

Searching Movie Review (2018) | The Movie Buff

In perhaps what will become known as the new found-footage film genre, "Searching" is a harrowing thriller told exclusively through screens (think 2014's "Unfriended"). But instead of using the internet as a cheap supernatural gimmick, first-time director Aneesh Chaganty uses the digital world as a clever story-telling device and clever commentary on today's social media-driven society.

Inside I'm Racing Movie Review (2017) | The Movie Buff

"Inside I'm Racing" is an Irish short film centered around autistic teen Jamie (Ethan Dodd) and his passion for auto racing. Right off the bat, the film falls into an easy trope so often seen by movies centered around characters with a disability - the story immediately becomes about how Jamie's disability impacts those around him, instead of how he navigates through life with autism.
