Location United States
Introduction Like Dalton in Road House, I'm an NYU grad. Unlike the Double Deuce bouncer, I tend to shy away from pain-inducing quarrels. I have an economics degree and a penchant for numbers. The genesis of my site and its predominant content may make you wonder why I'm championing a film intensive site. The best answer I can give you is found in my upbringing. Since my formative years, I have always possessed a quiet desire to work in film. I can recount vivid memories of trips to the movies watching Jurassic Park or Independence Day, and treating these trips as momentous occasions. I remember the first time I acted in a school play. Granted it was an amateur production, but I can still recall, with intimate satisfaction, the nature of my performance. As a junior in High School, I was charged with the task of playing Austin in Sam Shepard's play, True West. The entire process from line memorization to method acting excited me considerably. But these memories of acting were fleeting as my ambitions of a career on Wall Street seemed more practically tied to my academic pedigree—until now. Hopefully, this site will enhance my understanding of movies and rejuvenate that youthful, cinematic vigor.
Interests All aspects of film from the directing, writing, performing, the score and cinematography. The economy, the stock market, wealth creation, sports, Wikipedia, imdb, compelling stories, finance books, fitness, and an eclectic array of music.
