Los Angeles, CA - United States website twitter
I've been writing professionally about movies and entertainment since 1999, two years after I sold my first screenplay. I've also acted in several cult and underground movies alongside the likes of Walter Koenig, Norman Reedus, Tim Thomerson, Angela Bettis, and Lucky McKee. Currently, in addition to Ranker, I contribute to Nerdist, Forbes, The Village Voice and more. And I own so many toys that if they all fell on me, it would hurt a lot.
