As a screenwriter and director I work in both fiction and documentary film.  All of the short fiction that I have directed has won national and international awards. I was honoured by the Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild and was nominated for two IFTAs. My first feature documentary Broken Song premiered at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in 2013 where it won the Audience Award and the Michael Dwyer Discovery Award for directing. Sunlight is my first narrative feature and I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I am currently working with Amanda Coogan and Mind the Gap Films on an exciting new documentary about playwright Teresa Deevy.
