John "Skapyro" Stathakis
- Years in Magic
Hello everyone !
My name is John and I am currently finishing my studies at the Mathematics Department of the University of Athens.I have been into card magic/techniques for about 7-8 years now.My first contact with this art was through X-C-M which I then became obsessed with, but after a couple of years or so I kinda lost interest in this field, and started practicing in the areas of card magic, manipulation and gambling techniques.
This art has really grown on me, I've come to love it deeply and I am always trying to practice what I already know, learn new stuff and moves, and advance as much as I can.
My favorite fields now are manipulation/flourishes, card tricks of all kinds but especially strongly built effects consisting of many techniques and utility moves, and every field of gambling techniques.
My most basic influences are Darwin Ortiz, Dai Vernon, Richard Turner, Bill Malone and many others...
