👋🏼 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 travelled 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. You’ll learn closely-guarded magic consulting secrets like dual-reality, pre-show, mic-checks, and instant-stooging. Discover TV magic shortcuts and reveal what really goes on behind the scenes of your favourite magic shows.
