I was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1978 and grew up immersed in film in the 1990s during the American independent cinema boom. In 2008, after marrying a beautiful woman from the Niagara Region, I made the move to Canada and
I decided to pursue my dream of filmmaking. I went to study film in Toronto, first at Ryerson University and then at Humber College. At film school, I majored in writing, directing, and production management and directed two short films, both of which won awards at numerous festivals.
After graduating, I made two short films very quickly and then my first feature film, The Long Night, in 2018. Which is available on Vimeo On Demand.
In addition to my writing and directing, I have also worked as an Assistant Director, Script Supervisor, Camera Operator, Editor and Production Manager.
After working on set for nearly a decade, I began to teach film, and video production and the joy I found in the classroom pushed me to pursue my Master of Arts in Media Production. I graduated From Toronto Metropolitan University in 2020 just as the first lockdown happened.
The fifth short film I directed, P R E Y, a dark horror/thriller shot in Hamilton, Ontario has just been completed and will be in festivals soon.
I am currently developing my second feature, a comedy/drama titled Your Driver is on the Way, to shoot in 2023.
I am always excited to explore exciting and original stories through film and work collaboratively with other artists to achieve our shared goals.
