How did you first get started in cardistry?
A decade ago I accidentally stumbled on an online forum post that discussed two card moves - neither of which I knew anything about. I had to learn more, the more I educated myself, the more hungry I became.
Eventually Cardistry consumed me until it was all I did - it became an unhealthy obsession.
