Magic has been a passion of mine since 2003 when I first discovered a magic stall in York market. I bought a few tricks and started practising them on friends and family.
A couple that I got to know on a trip to Ghana in 2004 then invited me to perform a stand-up show at their wedding. The reactions I got, to my then amateurish performance, were sensational and I realised that I had the potential to develop this new found hobby into something much more professional.
Since then I have performed at a range of events including parties, weddings, formal dinners, trade shows, a hunt ball, christenings and festivals, mainly but not exclusively in North Yorkshire.
My preferred style is to do close-up magic at tables making things disappear and reappear in unusual places, often the magic happens right in your guests' own hands.
I work with mostly cards, coins, borrowed rings, strings, borrowed phones and some more unusual items.
I also love to perform mentalist type effects but my aim is not to prove anything, merely to entertain people. If people tell me that they've had fun and they often do, then I know I've achieved what I've set out to do.
