I have been working as a film journalist since 2010, dividing the first four years between radio broadcasting and entertainment writing in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. In 2014, I entered Fresh Fiction (FreshFiction.tv) as the features editor. The following year, I stepped into the film critic position at the Denton Record-Chronicle, a daily North Texas print publication. My time is dedicated to writing theatrical film reviews, at-home entertainment columns, and conducting interviews with on-screen talent and filmmakers, as well as hosting a podcast devoted to genre filmmaking (called My Bloody Podcast). I've been married for seven happy years, and I have one son who is all about dinosaurs just like his dad.

What is IMITATION about?
Director Morten Tyldum and screenwriter Graham Moore (check out video interview with Moore here) have created something tragically beautiful with THE IMITATION GAME. Amidst some incredible scenes and performances (especially Benedict Cumberbatch), this remarkably true story (of a mathematician who helps crack the Enigma code during World War II) is one of the finest of the year. It is a wonderfully crafted, immensely lush and moving film that shows, above all, how storytelling can both heal and destroy.
