The overall goal of Wherever I Look is to fill in that space between the average fan and critic. To be that person who formerly, when you went to a theater’s box office, or when you went to Blockbuster, could say this is good, this you’ll like if you are into that, or don’t waste your time. This is done by breaking down topics so that things are more easily digestible instead of a mountain of text, only broken up by quote blocks and pictures. Here, we want to deliver you something that is personable, sometimes a bit opinionated, but always coming from the place of being fans of movies, television, and so much more.

What Do We Cover?

While we love a good big-money blockbuster, our focus is to showcase indie movies, video-on-demand releases, and streaming releases. Especially those that could easily go under the radar, like “The Reading” from BET+, “Margaux,” which was released as a video-on-demand release, and “A Brush of Violence,” which we learned about via the director reaching out to us.

TV Series

Here at Wherever I Look, we don’t discriminate regarding TV Series. We cover anime, like ‘Violet Evergarden,” network shows like “The Good Doctor,” Netflix series like “Heartbreaker” and anything which has the ability to make us feel something week to week, or throughout a binge-watch.

Live Performances

With proximity to New York City, there is a wealth of opportunities to see live performances. Whether it is Broadway plays like “Grey House,” or off-Broadway plays like “Bees and Honey.” Also, we cover comedy shows, either filmed or before their stand-up specials are released, like in the case of Michelle Wolf‘s performance at the Count Basie Center of the Arts.


Character Guide Logo

From collected quotes from books like Angie Thomas’ “The Hate U Give,” character guides for shows like “Yellowjackets” and articles such as, “10 Movies and Shows to Watch for Mental Health Awareness Month,” Wherever I Look produces a slew of content beyond reviews.

This led to obtaining a BA in Communications, with a focus on media and communications theory, and alongside writing reviews, he recently write two pieces for “See You Again: The Wonder Egg Project.”
