I've been a Full-Time, Professional Magician since 2003 and I consider myself very lucky, that I have the opportunity to do a job I love. This hasn't always been the case, I started my working career back in 1996, training to be a mechanic with Mercedes-Benz. After successfully completing an apprenticeship, I celebrated by taking a trip to America, where I found the bright lights of Las Vegas, and a little magic shop in a mall. It was here where I was first subjected to the power of close-up magic. This changed my life forever. I blew the dust off my Paul Daniels Magic Set, bought as many books as I could (this was waaaay before YouTube!) and dedicated every bit of spare time I had, to learning more and more about the art of magic, and reviving the passionate 5 year old who had been long since forgotten. After years of dedication, and a lot of practise, I was honoured to be accepted into the most prestigious magical society in the world, The Magic Circle at my first attempt by strict examination. I can now proudly say, that after 10 years, I have been promoted to the Associate of The Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star, without examination and by a unanimous vote by council. YAY!
I have since performed for HRH - Anne Princess Royal, The Prime Minister - David Cameron, and Sir Richard Branson, to name but a few, as well as at numerous awards ceremonies, including The Royal Variety Show After Party, and The Brit Awards, AND I have been asked to advise on west-end stage shows and TV productions, so stop reading and watch my showreel or go straight to my contact form to see if I'm free :)
