I’ve been a movie lover for as long as I can remember. My father loved movies and he passed his deep affection for them on to me. I grew up on a steady diet of horror cinema, spaghetti westerns, American musicals, espionage adventures and Japanese monster movies that gave me the ability to appreciate films that were often marginalized by other film fans and overlooked by many critics. As I got older my interest in cinema expanded into other areas such as Italian Neorealism as well as the British, French and Japanese New Wave.

My first film reviews were published in my junior high school newspaper when I was 14-years-old and when I attended college in the late ’80s I concentrated on film studies. I started blogging about film in 2001 at Livejournal and for the last 8 years I’ve been writing about film here at Cinebeats. I currently write for Turner Classic Movies and regularly contribute to their Movie Morlocks blog. Some of my other writing accomplishments include contributing liner notes to the CD release of John Barry’s soundtrack for BOOM! (1968) and providing an overview of Lee Marvin’s performance in POINT BLANK (1967) to the 2008 Woodstock Film Festival guide. I’ve also contributed to various film related magazines and websites including Cineaste, Fandor and Paracinema.

In 2009 Cinebeats was nominated for a Rondo Award and in 2010 Film Comment called Cinebeats one of “The Top Film Criticism Sites” online. In 2011 the British film magazine, Total Film nominated Cinebeats for their “Best Film Fan Blog Award” and in 2012 I was asked to join the Alliance of Women Film Journalists.

I created Cinebeats because I like writing about film and I enjoy sharing my passion for cinema with others. Thanks for visiting and I hope you will enjoy my random ramblings about the movies I love and the people who make them.

Please feel free to contact me about work proposals or job offers at anytime. I’m always interested in new freelance projects.
