How long have you been interested in magic?
Virtually all my life; watched a magician on TV as a boy and got my first magic book through my school book club when I was 11 years old. Took it all further from there! I now have a huge library of books by the top magicians in the world who share their magic to fellow magicians (at considerable cost - but I like to invest in the best! Contrary to popular belief, magicians do share their secrets - but its supposed to be only to each other and only at a cost!)
Take us through your show – what can we expect?
You can expect at least 2 hours of top quality 'close up' magic. I mix and mingle with your guests informally over drinks if they are standing and chatting and then move on to when they are sitting down at dinner tables. I go to each table in turn, always going to tables that are waiting for their food first and then to tables that are in-between courses. In other words, avoiding interrupting people when they are eating. This is a great way of making the wait seem shorter and close up magic at events is also a very good icebreaker for people who do not know each other well or have not seen each other for a long time.
What do you love most about your job?
Making people happy - causing amazement and laughter.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Had been doing magic semi-professionally for a long time but I went full time professional to form my own business because I realised that I had reached a high level but did not have time to devote to more bookings - or time to market myself to more people and to more businesses.
Why should our clients choose you?
I like to think that my entertainment skills are as high as my sleight-of-hand skills. This is not always the case with many magicians who are good at 'tricks' but perhaps don't quite know how to be pleasant, engaging and witty/amusing.
