TV, Movies, & Entertainment

Updated: Apr 8

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. I write entertainment and history features for Looper and Grunge, and you can also find my coverage of all things Star Wars at Dork Side of the Force.

Here are some of my favorites:


‘Turning Red’ creators and actors talk girl gangs, boy bands, and normalizing puberty

Vikings: Valhalla: A little history of the series' 'brutal' Pagan-Christian war

A guide to the undead worlds created by Zack Snyder and George Romero
