Behind the scenes of this website ever since Examiner.com shut down a few years ago, I continually look for potential platforms and outlets where I can have my film reviews published for wider audiences.  I don't care if I get paid.  I know there isn't money in this creative venture for a guy like me with a day job.  I just enjoy getting my work out there to raise my press standing little by little.  Recently, I pitched my local suburban newspaper, The Forest Park Review, to volunteer my film reviews as a potential worthy addition to their publication. 

Its editor declined citing space is at a premium for focusing on local topics and issues, but he liked my journey as a school teacher, film critic, and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle.  He wanted to know if I would interested in being interviewed for a citizen's spotlight.  I was glad and honored to oblige.  Linked below is my interview piece written by contributing reporter Siobhan Neela-Stock as it appeared published Tuesday, August 14th.  When and where I grew up, you knew you did something pretty cool when you got your picture in the paper!  Thank you, Ms. Neela-Stock and The Forest Park Review!
