- Years in Magic
Daniel has yet to write a profile bio.
How did you first get started in magic?
I was going on a trip to France last year, and for some reason I watched some magic videos on YouTube. So, before I left the country, I ordered 4 Bicycle Mandolin Backs (thinking they were the standard ones) and when I got back they already arrived so I started my journey.
How did you first get started in cardistry?
I found cardistry very cool and impressive so after being 5 months into magic, I started trying some flourishes (from the wire) and one of the main things I did was to watch other people, fail, and come up with my own material.
What is your creative process - how do you come up with new effects and ideas?
I almost always have cards with me, and if I don't, I think about them. I mean, if I don't have cards with me, I imagine things I would've done if I did have. For example, I came back from the movies a few days ago and while imagining, I found a better way to do a pop out move I came up with a while back. However, I didn't have cards with me, so when I arrived, I gave my idea a shot and it went pretty well. Basically, always imagine and always try (even if you fail, and I fail a lot).
