New School Critics

(Note: if you're unfamiliar with Austin and want some restaurant recommendations, let me know! I have local knowledge!)

I'm a narrative and thematic expert, specializing in movies, TV, music, and literature.

I run a top 2000 arts & entertainment website (Film Colossus). Created and hosted a top 200 music podcast (Watching the Throne). Wrote an award-winning season for Spotify's Dissect podcast. Was a Forbes contributor. Was editor in chief of a literary journal (Red Fez). Consulted with filmmakers and musicians on projects. And have a social following of nearly 200,000.

I studied creative writing and film at Case Western Reserve University and the University of New South Wales. Entropy named my second novel, Killer Unconquered, one of the best books of 2020-2021.

Really looking forward to talking with people in the literary, film, music, and media spaces. Other content creators. Artists.

I'm originally from a small town in Ohio but now live in Austin. Married. Have a corgi. I am, unfortunately, a fan of Cleveland's sports teams.
