Where it all began

I was born in Dartford / Kent. The same town as Mick Jagger! My family moved away when I was just a baby! I am half Kiwi & half English. (my Dad is from New Zealand)! I have one older Sister call Kathryn and 2 Nephews – Oscar & Sebbie. When I left School, I trained to be a butcher in a local butcher’s shop! I really enjoy preparing meat and dealing with the public! I found working in a retail environment extremely rewarding, at times challenging and really did improve my social skill set.

What got me in to magic?

I was on holiday with some friends and a magician came to our table and performed some table magic (I am in touch with this Guy to this day via social media)! I will never forget the amazing feeling of witnessing magic for the first time! I was amazed, excited and shortly to follow was a burning desire to learn the methods behind it all! Followed by hours well years of dedication, practice, patience, research and joining a local magic society! Leading to performances and becoming an extremely proud member of the most prestigious magic society in the world – The World-Famous Magic Circle!

In my spare time

When I am not performing magic, I enjoy keeping fit / healthy lifestyle, watching football and rugby, sightseeing / travel, I like reading self-improvement/motivational books and making memories. I love international rugby and support New Zealand! I was fortunate enough to go to the world cup final in 2015 at Twickenham (great memories of that day)! On my travels I have visited Las Vegas, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Dubai and several European destinations. I have many more places I would like to tick off.

Anything else you would like to know please ask. I look forward to hearing from you and performing at your next event!

Thank you for your time. Take care.
