Me

Hey everyone
My name is Isaac Butler, and I am 14 years old.
My hobbies other than magic are football, art, and some cooking .
I started to learn magic after I begged my brothers girlfriend to teach me a trick. I eventually got it out of her and I was hooked. Since then my magic has just flourished. (ha ha "flourished. )
I live in Sarnia Ontario and perform at my High School .
I was also born in Sarnia. I have allot to owe to magic but mostly God for giving me this talent to gain friendships and to entertain.



Working on : the clip shift , and mentalism such as muscle, pencil ,and lip reading.

Hi guys !

Real name: Alex Coquentin

Age: 17 years old

How I started in magic: I saw a friend's magic trick, during a trip in Portugal, few months ago. After this, I started magic with Youtube and easy tricks. Day after day, I bought cards, DVDs and books to learn how to become a magician xD.

Where Am i now: I can show what I can do to my friends or my family, but that's all. I'm not ready for doing it in the street or in a show (in front of many persons). I prefer work in my bathroom and use my mirror as a spectator :)

Where do i live: In France, in the city of Rennes.

What is my king of magic ? Cards, cards and cards again :) I learned a lot with T11, especially with the trilogy. I start also cards manipulation, as Dan Sperry does :)

I think that's all for the moment :)

See u guys !

Other Hobbies: Used to play basketball, but now my foucus is acting and theatre.

How I got started: I saw Arthur Atsma perform at my church a few years back, and after he did a book test to me (and then guessed the OTHER word I was thinking of after the show) I knew I wanted to persue magic.

I'm working on getting some gigs, for now its just walkaround stuff. Also just getting pattter down and routining.

Age: 14, 15 next month

Hobbies Other Than Magic: Guitar, I also write Steven-Wright-esque one-liners.

How I Started Magic: There's a magic shop within walking distance from my house, (a guitar shop as well) There's absolutely nothing to do in this town besides skateboarding, and I HATE skateboarding, so those were pretty much my only options for fun.

Where I Am Now: I've been in magic for five years. I occasionally enter talent shows for money. (Entered three times, lost once, 2nd place once, and 3rd place another time) Next Summer I might try to get gigs. I perform a lot of street magic (http://www.vimeo.com/user1692468)

Where I Come From: San Francisco

Where I Live: I live in a small town in California.


I didn't imagined that most users here were so young :p

I believe it is because only the young-ins such as myself are wasting our time writing these things about ourselves.

I liked that photo mikk :p.

What camera did you use? did you used the sepia tone from your cam or from the edition in your computer?

It was a Canon i believe don't remember that well. But its done in a professional studio in my town. Got a chance to shoot some pics, ill add some more to my gallery in my profile.
But the Sepia is added on a computer and tweaked a bit. Adobe Lightroom is just amazing :).

Age: 15

Hobbies other than magic: handball (the NYC sport ;)), public speaking, writing

How I started in magic: I saw David Blaine around 3 or 4 years ago and tried learning as much as I could through youtube and such. I later found out it was wrong to do that and from there I discovered Tannens Magic Shop. They pointed me in the right direction.

Where Am I now: I am the president of my school's magic club. At the moment we are trying to gain recognition around the school and are working on a show with a magic buddy of mine. I hope to start doing restaurant gigs within the next 2 years. For now, I'm just performing as much as I can and learning all that I can.

Real Name: Will Abbottsmith

Age: 13

Hobbies Other Than Magic: Flourishing, Mentalism, Just plain talking to people, short cons, social engineering, squash

How I Started Magic: Pretty interesting, actually. About 2 years ago, I was on WikiHow.com, and I accidentally clicked on a how-to for a card trick. I was interested, so I googled to learn more about it. I went to a site, and it had an Ellusionist ad. I signed up for the "5 free tricks". I went about learning from the internet (public domain copies of Royal Road to Card Magic) then I found a magic forum (not this one) and the members there were really helpful, and I got more interested and bought more books, and it all went from there.

Where I Am Now: I have a deck of cards in my hand all the time at my house, and If I'm out I always have a few half dollars as well. I'm into flourishing, and I do that a lot. I also do magic a lot. I perform at people's house parties and dinners, I get those gigs from performing in random places.

Where I Come From: Cincinnati (near the USPCC)

Where I Live: Still Cinci.
