As with many devotees of the art of magic, this magician's interest in sleight of hand
goes back to his childhood when a magical performance at a school assembly kindled a keen
desire to create in others the same sense of wonder that watching the magician make
coins, candles and cards appear from thin air had created in him.
He took magic as a hobby and began studying sleight of hand seriously. Then after a 22 year
career working at a real job, with the Province of British Columbia, took the job of manager
at Tony's Trick and Joke Shop, later Murray's Trick and Joke Shop, and began taking lessons
in showmanship and stage craft among other magical subjects from Tony Eng, a very talented
member of the Victoria Magic Circle. These lessons provided a solid foundation for what has been a life-long
interest in stage magic and close up magic; but his first love, magically speaking, is close-up magic.
While interested in all branches magic, in the past five years, this entertainer has
devoted himself largely to his nightclub style magic show.
