Thanks for checking out my profile! I'm a student currently studying at the University of California Berkeley where I plan on majoring in Poli-Sci and/or English (and/or practically and major, I have no idea what I want to do). I've loved film my entire life, like so many other people I'm sure, and besides just reviewing I've been actively involved in both high school and college writing and creating movies. The ability to tell a story for any number of purposes allows artists to connect with people in profound ways, and I'm constantly in awe of the multitude of ways movies are able to succeed (or not succeed at this). Thus, by writing reviews I am able to feel that much closer to the works of film I watch and if my writing is good enough I am able to connect and share my viewpoints with my readers in much the same way a filmmaker can. And by god, I hope I'm an interesting and competent enough rider that at least one or two people will read these reviews.

If not, a shout into the void never hurt anybody!

Also, I love the beach, baseball, friends/family, and hiking and stuff. I think I'm supposed to say that here.
