Entertainment features & reviews
Updated: Jan 18
I'm a nerd. I love television, movies, books, video games, and anything else related to popular culture. And, I love writing about them. I spent four years as a reporter for Florida's largest newspaper, the Tampa Bay Times, and while there became the unofficial television critic. I reviewed shows and movies, interviewed celebrities, wrote a weekly TV guide, and covered all of the comic book conventions that came to town.
Now, as a freelance writer, I continue to share stories from the geek community for local and digital outlets.
Here are some of my favorites:
