I am a member of The Magic Circle and have been studying and performing magic since I was nine (over 50 years ago!). Formerly a member of the Liverpool Mahatma Magic Circle, on moving to the Isle of Man in 2011 I joined the Island’s magic club, the Magicians of Mann, and am a regular performer at their sell-out stage shows. In 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2018, I was the winner of the club’s annual ‘Chairman’s Challenge’ competition for the best trick of the year by a member.
My preferred style of magic is parlour and standing close-up – ideally suited for ‘mix and mingle’ and table events (formal and informal). On the Island, I have performed at corporate and charity events, private functions, and weddings. I do not take bookings for children’s parties – there are better children’s entertainers on the Island!
My repertoire includes magic with cards, coins, cups, balls, dice, rings, ropes and Rubik’s cubes, as well as some baffling demonstrations of mind reading!
Among magicians worldwide, I am known for my series of (currently 15) ebooks of original tricks and magical techniques. I am a regular attendee at magicians’ conventions in the UK and abroad, including the World Magical Championships held in Rimini, Italy in 2015.
I am a member of the performers’ union Equity and my bookings are covered by Public Liability Insurance.
