Aaron is a longtime podcast listener whose passion is to discuss movies in a positive way was realized in the creation of Feelin’ Film alongside his childhood best friend, Patrick. With so much negativity in both film criticism and fandom, the collective dislike of a movie tends to ring louder than those praising it. His hope is that by shining a light on the emotional impact of all films discussed, Feelin’ Film can begin to shape the viewing habits of listeners and encourage them to focus on the best a movie has to offer instead of latching on to what they didn’t like.
He is currently an accredited film critic and member of the Seattle Film Critics Society, Hollywood Creative Alliance, and Cascadia Film and TV Critics Association, living in Seattle, WA with his two children, three cats, and two Boston Terriers. Though the majority of his free time is invested in Feelin’ Film, he enjoys watching sports, playing games, and hiking. He also thoroughly enjoys conversation about all of these things and is active on Twitter, Facebook, and Letterboxd.
Patrick or “Patch” as he is known by in many circles, is a longtime lover of the art of storytelling. From books, comics, television and movies, he loves looking at the art form from both a critical and emotional level. He saw Feelin’ Film as an avenue, not only to continue this pursuit in another capacity but to also expose more people to the kinds of conversation he and Aaron share on a daily basis.
He is a member of the Southeastern Film Critics Association and calls Little Rock, Arkansas home with his family of four (his wife, son and two pets). When he’s not podcasting, he’s working on various design projects as a freelance multimedia designer and is also dabbling in the art of writing and directing. You can find him floating around the web on Twitter and his home on the web, ThisIsPatch.com.
