Russell came and did a private function for us at our house in Franschhoek. Needless to say we were all left speechless. What a brilliant illusionist and great guy. Very engaging and kept us engrossed. Will recommend him everywhere. More...

Working with Russell was magic, he is so obliging and accommodating. His show turned my daughter’s 21st into the most spectacular day ever. We will never stop talking about his show. So talented. More...

We hired Russell to do a birthday party for us, with some pretty specific requirements. It was done secretively for the birthday person and she had no idea - even when Russell got here- what was going down. Russell played his part to perfection.
His show was clever, insightful, highly entertaining and definitely had us wanting more at the end. Not only is Russell great too work with, but he is a real pro!
As a company director, I used to high standards as a matter of course, and if I decide to have either a personal or business gig again, I would have no hesitation in calling on Russell.
There is much more than what he had on show and our guests left much the richer for having been through the experience with him.
I hope to see him again soon

After having a serious heart attack, triple by pass open heart surgery, life was a slow careful journey. Everything slowed down and one tends to stop living - too scared to do something, the "what if my heart" thoughts hanging around. After attending a conference where Russel spoke and months of life coaching, everything changed for the better. I see life in a far more positive way. Correct to living. Correct diet (which is still work in progress). Correct positive mind set. I am not great at writing reviews, but what I can say is, having crossed paths with a life saver such as Russel, has meant the world to me. More...

Hey Wayne Its been such an amazing honour and privilege to be working with you over the past number of years after your encounter at one of my Glass Walker team builds. Its been incredible seeing your growth as you have discovered your potential, self-worth and value, learning to love yourself and continually striving to become the best version of yourself you can possibly be. This is the gift I as a coach receive from seeing life-changing moments and growth in the lives of those I coach. Thank you for making yourself vulnerable to me, so as to help you grow and become better at life. Stay Gifted Russ



For many years, I’ve played the piano, guitar and numerous other musical instruments – whether simply playing for friends and families at social gatherings or for those moments of self-reflection. But my performing spirit only truly came to life when I discovered the Art of Magic.

Magic Is About Creating Moments Of Wonder And Reigniting The Imagination Of Your Audience.

Shows may vary from event to client specifications, this is a part and parcel of creating a moment that is truly for them alone.

Each performance even the Illusions, Magic or Mentalism performed is focused on the client and there needs, brand and personalities taking all these things into considerations to create unforgettable experiences for each event.

- Magic Is About Creating Moments Of Wonder
- Reigniting The Imagination Of Your Audience.
- Creating Unforgettable Moments And Experiences
- An Entertainment Experience That's Focused On The Event Needs

Inspiring my audience to see the world from a different perspective to uncover and inspire their true potential.

That's a story to share in person, so feel free to ask me on the day or over the phone when booking me.

I would love to share this with you.

The ability to perform and motivate is a beautiful gift that increases in value with each moment shared.

It’s a way to envelop your life in a world of your own, a way to relate and communicate emotions and experiences with a vast array of people and ultimately a world best spent sharing with others.

Each show holds a special place in my heart as I expand my craft and experience with every performance.

Here's what a few of my high racking Clients, Celebrities & Media have to say

Close up walk-around magic or mentalism is a great way to make guests feel at ease, break the ice and entertained during the cocktail hour, photoshoot or as guest arrives at your event.

This intimate style of performance allows the flow of the event to move uninterrupted and is an incredible ice breaker.

Interaction is key here as Russell uses cards, coins, plus items belonging to guest and other props to mingle with and delight your guests.

He also makes objects move or float without touching them, reads guests minds and bends metal objects such as coins, keys and forks with what appears to be the mind.

Whether during a cocktail hour, at the dinner table, pre or post-show entertainment, at trade shows or in hospitality suites, Russell will have your guests utterly enthralled as he moves between tables and guests with consummate ease and showmanship.
