👋🏼 It’s nice to meet you.

Hello, Curious Magician—I’m Rory!

I write magic for talented humans like Dynamo, Troy, Justin Willman, & Neil Patrick Harris. I’ve travelled the world writing telly magic for shows like Netflix’s Magic For Humans, ITV’s The Next Great Magician, & JSBC’s The Amazing Magicians, and so much more.

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 favourite 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.
