"The world is full of obvious things which nobody by chance ever observes."
-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
As far back as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by the Sherlock Holmes stories. The Great Detective's ability to solve the most baffling crimes based on his observation of the smallest, most seemingly insignificant details taught me at an early age that oftentimes trifles are the most important things in this world.
As a Writer, I strive to create stories that hinge on details, always keeping the reader on their toes and as an Actor, I seek to represent truth through the smallest details.
I invite you to investigate this website on your own and discover the importance of trifles in print, on the stage, and everywhere else.

First broadcast on Sunday, March 26, 2023, "The Problem of the Slashed Portrait" is my own adaptation of my short story of the same name which first appeared in The Feats of Sherlock Holmes. John Patrick Lowrie stars as Holmes and Lawrence Albert as Watson with a full cast in this audio adventure which sees the Baker Street duo consulted after a perfectly rational woman appears to have gone insane.

"Nick Cardillo weaves stories filled with the proper Victorian tone, clever manners, complicated characters and vivid settings...with the vitality that Holmes fans love and the character deserve."
"[The Improbable Casebook of Sherlock Holmes] is one of the best single author anthologies I have read. Highly recommended."
