About Me!

Born in Southampton in 1971 and grew up in Fareham. My initial interest in magic began when I was a small boy and I used to visit a local joke shop with my parents. Occasionally they would indulge my fixation with magic by purchasing some of the latest tricks. Most of my time was spent practicing to make it perfect and performing for my family and friends.

By the time I reached ten years old, I already knew what career path I was going to take. When I left school I worked in the building industry but always kept my interest in magic and never let go of my dream career.

As the years have come and gone, my magic became of a professional nature. In the year of 2006, I was invited to join the Portsmouth District Magic Circle as a result of my enthusiasm and contact with other members.

This has led me to do professional close-up magic regularly for special events. I have performed at a wide variety of venues for different occasions and I always try to leave the audience with an enjoyable memory of my performance.

Why not escape into the world of wonder – I did!
