The book exposed him to the wonders of magic and the rich benefits that it had to offer.
His fascination with magic steadily increased and he began to seek out more knowledge about this intriguing art form.
He visited various magic shops, spoke with fellow magicians, studied books and videos and joined magic societies in order to experience more. At this time he was interested in general magic, but soon learnt that his forte was close-up magic and sleight of hand.
He began working as a close-up magician in restaurants and for corporate functions both locally and nationally, whilst also at the same time entering and winning some of the most prestigious magic competitions and awards.

It was great to be back, by popular demand, at my residency at The Marquis in the Alkham Valley. A superb fine dining venue perfectly located in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Folkestone and Dover. Today saw a mixture, to a packed restaurant, of magic involving cards, money and rope as well as mind-reading ( where I not only divined a spectators PIN number, but also revealed there date of birth and star sign! ) and the worlds oldest recorded magic trick! I love performing and sharing my magic with all those that...read more

The whole audience witnessed displays of sleight of hand, precognition, psychological influence and direct mindreading that left them gasping and in awe.read more
Well with all the hot weather recently, I was not sure how I would cope performing magic in the heat. After all, for most functions I wear a suit, tie and shirt, but I am sure that would almost be unbearable in the sun!!! As I had two engagements to attend this last weekend to perform my close up magic, I opted for the safe approach of performing wearing a short sleeved shirt and trousers, without jacket or tie, and I have got to say it was most welcome and added something more of a relaxed, open and organic feel to my performances. It was a...read more

I have performed my close up and walk-around magic in many different situations and a variety of venues. I have also had the pleasure of performing magic for Hen parties all around Kent, but this is the first time I have performed for a Hen Party on a beach!!! This was a beautiful, hot Saturday afternoon in July and although only a small gathering, the intimacy of the magic being performed for a small group only made it more special. The Hen Party was being held on a small part of Whitstable’s beach front and unknown to me, during the...read more
