Magician

I’m a magician because…

Magician with playing card

I love meeting people and taking away everyday life for the brief moments of my performance – giving them a sense of wonder. Seeing the reactions on their faces really spurs me on. I learnt my first trick when I was 16 and had a residency at a local pub by 18. I then started offering my services for weddings and parties.

I’m profoundly deaf and wear hearing aids. I have good speech and can hear reasonably well with my hearing aids which allows me to work in both deaf and hearing worlds. I’m patient with people and control the conversation when it comes to my work, this reduces random comments which may cause me confusion.
