How did you first get started in magic?
My interest in magic began when my older brother showed me a slip force. I was instantly baffled! He then told me to go on youtube to learn all the basic tricks, so I did that. Eventually that let me to visiting magic websites like Ellusionist and Theory11. My magic adventure began from there!
Which artists have inspired you the most in your work thus far?
David Stone, Jean Pierre Vallarino, David Sousa, Lance Burton, and Jean-Luc Betrand.
What is your creative process - how do you come up with new effects and ideas?
Watch other tricks and then try to come up with your own variations
What advice would you give to new performers just starting today?
Don't get discouraged by people who tell you magic is just a waste of time. When I first started out all my friends and family told me that I was just wasting my time practicing tricks when I should have been doing something more "productive". Well, I didn't listen to them, and now I think I'm a pretty successful magician having been doing it for only 4 years.
