The one man tartan army
Owner - Writer - Producer
Phil was born and raised in Grangemouth, Scotland and he now splits his time between his native Scotland and his second life in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.
He took an interest in writing at an early age, writing ridiculous stories about drag racing hamsters. After moving to the Chicagoland area at age 11, he spent his teenage years expanding his writing through song lyrics, poetry, short stories, and both critical & humorous essays. This culminated in the publishing of The Great Facepalm : The Farce of 21st Century Normality in 2014.
He also drew inspiration from his Great Uncle, British novelist, journalist, film & theatre critic, Alan Brien. Alan once said to him, "writers are like gods, they are the only other people that can create something from nothing." The power of the written word to become anything from a mantra to a movement is profoundly true.
Eventually, his love of writing found its home in the medium of film. The beauty of screenwriting is that you're never alone. There is always a hive of creative minds adding their own talent to simple words written on a page. Ghosts in the Ink, like so many other stories, started with personal experiences, the gambit of emotions witnessed of friends & family, and a little inspirational nudge from a friend. It has since taken on a life of its own, died, and been reborn a hundred times, finally ready to grace the screen.
Phil has other film projects in various stages of development.
