I have been performing and creating magic since I was 10 years old. Over the years I have had great experience performing at various types of events with people of all ages and nationalities. From standing in front of a few hundred people doing larger illusions to the more intimate close-up effects with the magic itself happening in the spectators’ hands, my passion has always been to give people that feeling of childlike excitement and mystery that all of us remember but rarely experience.
In the past four or five years, I have been creating my own effects and testing them out with people I meet, tweaking and perfecting them to ensure that they are the best they can be.
People don’t deserve to be patronised (N.B. ‘Patronise’ means to talk down to someone…). I firmly believe that magic and illusions can be done in a way that doesn’t insult the audiences’ intelligence. That doesn’t assume they are passive, vapid consumers who don’t question or think or reason what they are being shown.
I am always keen to ensure that my effects are never designed with an ‘I’m smarter than you’ ignorance but are, instead, dealt with in a respectful manner. After all, if there were no audience, there would be no ‘magic’.
When I visited Morocco in 2006 at the age of 15, I performed effects to some of the local children in the Atlas Mountains using objects that I found lying around. Despite the language barrier, remedial props and the difference in culture, these children were able to be just as astonished and fascinated as I was when I saw magic for the first time. It was here that I learnt that magic is a universal language.
I have performed at school proms, leaving celebrations, community clubs as well as various birthday parties for adults and young children alike. If you would be interested in hiring me for your event, please complete the form below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
