I'm an independent filmmaker. Studied animation at Ballyfermot College of Further Education (then Senior College Ballyfermot) and graduated in 2000 with a Higher National Dimploma.
Began writing screenplays during college. Formed partnership with Thomas Kennedy in 2001 and began Pale Stone Productions.
We made 'Emily's Song' in 2005, completed 2006, screened at 30 international film festivals, broadcast on RTE and Channel 4, won the Crystal Heart Award, UNICEF award and special Mention at Oberhausen Short Film Fest.
I went on to make 'Bill, For Short' in 2008, now distributed by Network Ireland Television. Then 'Slán agus Beannacht' in 2009, recently acquired by RTE and broadcast on national television.
I began production of '140' the same year. We closed Pale Stone Production in September of 2009. Completed '140' in January of 2010, which has gone on to screen at five festival so far. Had it's world premiere at the Newport Beach Film Fest and it's European Premiere at the IFI in Dublin.
