My name is James Rosario. I'm a writer, film nerd, pro-wrestling fan, and longtime punk rocker. I have a wife and two kids, and we live in Asheville, North Carolina. I've been writing movie reviews and film criticism for some time now and find the field fascinating. Having an outlet to discuss film is extremely cathartic and rewarding.

I also write the occasional record review, compile a punk rock music podcast, and publish photo blogs. But what's most exciting is that I'm in the beginning stages of writing my first novel. It takes place in the years leading up to World War I, and involves the carnival wrestling circuit and Scandinavian magic. I'm pretty excited about it, as I'm sure you can imagine.

My blog, The Daily Orca is where I publish most of my work, but I have a number of reviews and articles published with Asheville Grit (where I am the lead film critic), and Razorcake Magazine (where I write a monthly movie column as well as contribute to print content).

I've been involved in punk rock for over 25 years. My experiences in that scene give me a unique perspective on everything that I write or produce. I tend to see things from a street level, with a heavy dose of criticism for conformity, greed, and corruption.

I'm not out to get rich, but I love to write, create, and share my thoughts with as many people from as many places as I can. By day I am but a simple librarian, by night I write, write, write--and with your help I can continue to do so. I would love it if you came on this journey with me.

Thank you!
