My love affair and ultimately, my journey into the wonderful world of magic began at the tender age of 6.
Sadly I gave it up in my early teens, but, I did keep my hand in so to speak.
The fire was reignited at the age of 26.
I studied hard, and spent a minimum of 4 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 2 and a half years.
I was then asked to attend a few meetings at Cardiff Magical Society.
At the end of the 3rd meeting, I was given an audition date.
Most Magicians dread performing for other Magicians.
Not me !!!
I relished the challenge of performing for other Magicians.
On arrival for my audition, I discovered the society had organised a full show for family, friends, and anyone who wished to attend.
My audition was scheduled for the end of the show.
That's when the audience were to leave, and only my peers would remain to watch my audition.
As the audience stood up to leave, my audition was announced.
To my surprise, the whole audience sat down again.
That's when I realised, my audition would be in front of a packed house of around 130 people.
Of which, around 20 or so, were Magicians.
During my audition, one lady who was sitting next to the editor of the magic magazine began to cry.
The editor asked her what was wrong.
She replied, she believed I was using REAL MAGIC !
Needless to say, I had a great write-up in the magazine.
To my surprise, I had not only amazed the audience.
I had also amazed every Magician in attendance.
A few weeks after my audition, I received a letter from the society.
It said that my audition was the finest audition they had ever seen, and they welcomed me into the society with immediate effect.
With more than 20 year's experience performing at events all over the UK.
I've Entertained at every type of venue, with the exception of theatres.
I have no interest in performing on Stage.
I love performing in the Close Up Arena.
That's where I can bring people into my world.
For me, nothing else comes close to entertaining Up Close And Personal.
It's a feeling I can't explain !!!
Over the years, I have made some AMAZING friends in the world of magic from all over the world.
I'm very lucky in the respect that I'm very well respected within the magic community.
I get contacted by Magicians from around the globe.
They range from amateurs, to semi Professionals, to full time professionals.
Some asking for advice, but many asking for my help to master a move or an effect.
So I tend to spend a lot of my time, speaking to, and teaching Magicians from around the world via video tutorials.
The wonderful world of magic has been very good me.
I've been to amazing places.
I've met some amazing people.
I've made some amazing friends.
It's truly humbling to know that my peers consider me to be a teacher of this Wonderful Art !
And all because a little 6 year old boy, fell in love with magic !
I specialise in Top Class Entertaining Close Up Magic at the tables or for standing groups.
