User Bio

I am passionate about film and for the last 15 years I've been working on building a career in film as a writer/director.

I studied for one year in Art and Design followed by 4 years in Animation Production in Ballyfermot, where I received a Higher National Diploma. I met Thomas A Kennedy and in 2001 we set up Pale Stone Productions Limited.

Our first film was Emily's Song, which I co-wrote and directed, it has gone on to screen at over 25 International Film Festivals. It won the 2006 Crystal Heart Award from the Heartland Film Festival, The Unicef UK award and recieved a Special Mention at the 53rd Oberhausen International Short Film Festival. It screened on RTE 2 in August 2007 and December 2008, and continues to screen around the world.

I directed a no-budget short documentary entitled Bill, For Short, has screened at the Heartland Film festival, Heart of Gold Film Festival and will soon screen at festivals in Morocco, Mexico and Italy.

I am currently in post production of my third short film, a piece called Slan agus Beannacht (Goodbye and Blessing).

I am in pre-production on two production, a fourth short film entitled ADAM and a feature documentary entitled 140, involving 140 filmmakers from around the world shooting simultaneously in 140 locations.

I am also currently developing two feature scripts Night (co-written with Thomas A Kennedy) and Ghoster.
