Short Screenplay Finalist
I am a screenwriter with a passion for drama and comedy.
Coming from a self employed entrepreneurial background i am not shy to new ideas and I would be a creative inventive type of person.
Previously I have taken analogue and photography modules in Crawford College of Art and Design and it was through this process that my visual storytelling grew .
Having gained a distinction in digital photography i wanted to express my storytelling in a more compelling medium.
A passion for poetry helped me with this transition to film and I took to short film making course in Cork which inspired me to write my first short screenplay The Jacket and my current script which has just been finished is Midas Mike.
I have written some unpublished poetry and write for the love of it.
Movies that have inspired me are The Shawshank Redemption/Pulp Fiction/As Good As It Gets.
Directors that have inspired me are Quentin Tarrantino and I'm a fan of the screenwriter Richard Curtis.
My work aims to convey the human connections and the emotional connections with story and viewer. I endeavour to bring the imagination alive within the audience and to bring that journey along an authentic intelligent plot that leaves the viewer with a vivid journey. Also with a purpose to entertain and in some cases stir the predisposed concepts and ideas to a new vision for that audience.
