Writing about Films from the Golden Age of Hollywood

About and Contact

I’ve been watching old films since I was a kid. I’m a writer, speaker, film historian and aspiring novelist. My favorite classic film is probably Notorious, though I reserve the right to change my mind. When not reading and writing, I enjoy rowing and doing my cat Blinker’s bidding. I live in Pittsburgh.

And I’m officially a muse. Novelist and short story writer (and my friend) Sharon Dilworth published a (very fictional) short story about me in The Forge Literary Magazine. For the record, I’ve never been divorced but I did go a little nuts during the pandemic. Who didn’t?
