Just passing through…?

Why not take a look at the trailer for Passing Through, my debut feature film?

This project has dominated my life for the past five years, redefined how I see myself and shifted my creative ambitions. Read more about it here.

About Me

I’m a playwright, screenwriter and director, originally from Belfast, now based in London. I was in my mid thirties and pondering my next move as a playwright, when on a whim I decided to experiment with a switch from theatre to film. The result of that experiment was Passing Through, my award-winning debut feature, which began its run in festivals in 2023. It’s given me the impetus to continue to explore the possibilities of the artform: a lesson, as a man once said, in how we become what we are.

What I do

From my early plays when I was still a student, via my first attempts at short film-making, to my latest feature-length drama.

I’ve taught filmmaking with children and young people at primary and secondary level, and provide one-to-one screenwriting coaching for adults.
