I'm a classic film historian, host and writer who specializes in movies released between 1920 and 1960. 

Having spent most of my career writing award-winning marketing copy for Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros., I'm now pursuing my passion for the classics full-time.

I love the work of Billy Wilder, William Wyler, Wild Bill Wellman (what's with all the Bills?), Buster Keaton's silent comedies, Pre-Code Hollywood and Film Noir.


After producing TV and radio spots for two Boston television stations, I moved to L.A., where I worked as an advertising manager at Paramount Domestic Television. Returning to the East Coast, I launched a marketing copywriting business that promoted films and TV series for several entertainment clients.

I am a proud member of CMBA, the Classic Movie Blog Association, and I review books about classic films on GoodReads and Amazon.

I've also written humor essays for The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune.
