What advice would you give to new performers just starting today?
-Learn the basics, they may be boring but essential.
-Don't get caught up in all the one trick DVDs, read books, you can get much more for your money.
-Practice, practice, practice, its the only way you can improve.
-Perform, don't just sit in front of a webcam, get out there and astonish.
Which artists have inspired you the most in your work thus far?
The artist that have inspired me the most are: R.Paul Wilson, Dan & Dave Buck, Lee Asher, Aaron Fisher, Helder Guimaraes, Dani DaOrtiz.
But I also in recent times people like: Alex Pandrea, Tony Chang, Ben Earl. Because I like their innovative thoughts on old slights.
How often do you practice - how do you keep your skills (and mind) sharp?
If I get fed up with cards, I start on coins, sponge balls, rope tricks e.t.c. Then incorporate them into my act if I can.
