I have been many things in my life in this wonderful world for which we all dwell within. I have seen many things of the blue collar world, the white and everything in between. I started in this industry almost twelve years ago as a lonely graphic designer, turned loose on the streets of Los Angeles trying to make it big in any industry fresh out of college. As I began my stint working for a rather prestigious design firm and making that long, bumper to bumper drive that every Los Angelian knows all to well from a small apartment in North Hollywood, I met a couple people through my boss at the time, who where in the adult entertainment industry. They were beginning to start websites of their own for their fans and needed the assistance of a skilled designer, who would look the other way, not be offended by the work he was doing and not hold a judgemental eye, always fixated upon my boss, or the people I was working for and with. I found that as I begun working for these people, that they were hard working individuals, they were people who were living normal lives and best of all, they were people who simply cared for one another, had unity in all that they did and had a compassionate shoulder for all in the business. I found that simply the most amazing of things.
Fast forward a few years and my work in the field of graphic design had taken me to places that I would never have thought possible as a boy born on the streets of New York and raised in the lower class communities of Denver, Colorado. I had found myself working with big clients, in many forms of entertainment, local politics, professional sports and even with foreign dignitaries. As all these great things went on in my life, my passion, my love for this industry was always on the back of my mind and something that was always apart of my life and my sexuality and still is. Over the years, a shy 18 year old is taught many things, especially when he is attending a "Public Ivy" school as he ships of to college on scholarship and has not one friend in the world as he arrives, but has always been infatuated with that beautiful thing known as "woman" and the voyeuristic aspect of my emotions and personality that loved sex and everything there is associated with it, love, chemistry, relationships, interaction and of coarse the stimulation of it all to the human brain. I was and will forever be a fan of this industry due to those critical parts of who I am as a person. As I discovered adult films for the first time in College, I had also found that my passion for the business was not as small among other people, as I had once thought it to be. I had found that there were many people, men and women, couples, who all enjoyed adult films as much as I did. People who loved the raw sexuality, the performance, the camera work and of coarse the sex. It was from those days forward that I always wanted to spread the word to others who had the same love of film that I did, that it was OK to show your passion, that you are not some kook or weirdo who is not what "normal" society consists of. On the contrary, I wanted to show people, that they were far more "normal" than the people who hid there love for adult films away from the world. It was that day, I vowed to be apart of this industry and presto, here I am all those years later.
I made a promise to a family member that I would one day be here and now that I am, I want every reader to know that here on the X-Critic site, that I am dedicated to bringing you the honest aspect of the films that inspired me to success years ago. Getting to have my words shared through such a prestigious company is something that can never be topped and as I look to continue my growth in this industry I love, I will indeed make a vow to you the fans, that I will bring you an insight that shows the true beauty of this industry and always give you a view that you may not have seen before, for that is what those great writers did for me before my time and I find it only fitting to continue that tradition of excellence, here at X-Critic. It is adult films that continue to be apart of my life.
