👋🏼 It’s nice to meet you.

I’m Rory! I am a writer for talented humans like Dynamo, Troy, Justin Willman, & Neil Patrick Harris. I’ve traveled the world writing on shows like Netflix’s Magic For Humans, ITV’s The Next Great Magician, & JSBC’s The Amazing Magicians.

Now, I’m writing about writing magic in this weekly newsletter. I share closely-guarded magic consulting secrets like dual-reality, pre-show, mic-checks, and instant-stooging. I break down TV magic shortcuts and reveal what really goes on behind the scenes of your favorite magic shows.

One Ahead has grown to be a community of 7,000+ dedicated magicians. With your support, I’ve been able to hire content producers, copyeditors, and contributing writers. I’ve also been able to ask some of the best minds in magic to join One Ahead as monthly columnists.

I want you to become a better magician with these weekly insights and tricks. Take your magic to the next level and join thousands of readers—subscribe today.
