I am a magician, psychological mind reader or mentalist, escapologist and balloon modeller. I have been performing for over 10 years, focusing particularly on student events, private parties and weddings nationally.
I am currently based in Essex but can be frequently found travelling nationwide from one event to another performing my shows and close up.
I have performed at top national and international events and am also a regular performer at charity events in my home county.
I have been a magician for over ten years, primarily working as a close-up or walkaround magician for students and adults, however, over the last few years I have added stage and stand-up performances due to popular demand. I am mainly booked to entertain at weddings, private and corporate parties and university events.
My magic includes all the expected items such as cards and coins, however, I also bring along a wide variety of other more unusual objects as well and if you like I can use your own objects too.
My strolling or walkabout act is a great ice breaker at receptions and events and, alongside my other specialities, creates a night that will be talked about for a long time to come. I normally mix my magic act with psychological mind reading, demonstrating just how far the mind can go, as well as teaching you a few of my methods. With the rise in popularity of NLP in the workplace, this takes a fun sideways step and looks at whether we really are in control of our own thoughts.
My other acts that can complement the magic are balloon modelling which is a surprisingly overlooked hit among adults and older teenagers, and not just children. I also perform escapology which brings something very different to the party. Click on my other skills to find out more about these areas.
