Referred to as the "smooth talking stud of magic" by the Montreal Mirror. Spidey has been making a mark in the magic community since his early teenage years. As a performer he has toured Canada, the U.S and the Caribbean, made the finals of Canada's Got Talent and landed his own on screen show in his hometown. As a creator he has released several top selling DVD's and collaborated with some of the biggest names in magic such as Richard Sanders, Wayne Houchin and now; theory11.
