I am a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in film making. I have been interested in films and film making since I was about 13. I stumbled upon the list of the AFI's top 100 movies of all time from 2007 and I was put on a path of discovering movies and then beginning to understand the film making process and critiquing them throughout high school. Now I'm in college and learning in better detail how to make and analyze movies. I had no idea what Criterion was until I received Days of Heaven as a Christmas gift in high school. Now I'm diving into the collection head first and there's so much for me to witness.

  • Favorite director: Coen Brothers & Hitchcock
  • Favorite Criterion edition: Paths of Glory
  • Most wanted in the collection: Star Wars original trilogy (theatrical cuts) and dozens of other laser disc releases that have yet to return to Criterion such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, King Kong, Pulp Fiction, Lawrence of Arabia, and Citizen Kane.
