Need a freelance writer? Let's talk. As a critic, journalist and experienced media/communications professional, I can handle all kinds of projects, including press materials, newsletters, copywriting and editing. Of course, movies are more fun, but a girl's gotta eat.
As much as I love seeing my reviews in print, there's only so much I can cram on the shrinking page. So I've launched this blog to create a place where I can share my opinions on film, television, media -- basically anything that dares to inform or entertain us.
Who am I to spout opinions? Well, I have a Film Studies degree from Columbia University, a Masters in Mass Communication/Media Studies from SDSU, and have worked in and around the TV/Film business for more than 15 years in places like American Movie Classics, UCLA Film and Television Archive, Paramount Studios (as a page) and Martin Scorsese's production office (as an unpaid intern). All of this adds up to a unique perspective on "the business" - both the good and the bad.
I've been the U-T's critic since January 2010, and before that for the La Jolla Light. I'm also a member of the San Diego Film Critics Society and the Alliance of Women Film Journalists. For more about me, read the U-T's "Meet the Critic" Q&A (January 22, 2010).
When I'm not in a crowded movie theater, I'm usually at my day job as Communications Director for University of California Television (UCTV) and UCSD-TV. I've been there since 2003 and love and believe in our public service mission.
Public education and journalism. Do I know how to pick careers or what? Thanks for joining me here!
