👋🏼 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 for the past decade writing on television 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’ll share closely-guarded magic consulting secrets like dual-reality, pre-show, mic-checks and instant-stooging. I’ll break down TV magic shortcuts and reveal what really goes on behind the scenes of your favourite magic shows.

Be a better magician with weekly insights and tricks. Take your magic to the next level by joining thousands of readers and subscribing today.
