1. Did you have any magic-friend that you pracited your own created tricks on? Or did you went out on the streets and tried them out. So basicly what I'm asking is: how did you know "this is a really great trick that I've just created".

2. If you had to choose, DVD's or books?

3. When you where young who was you inspiration?

4. What's your opinion on custom made cards?

What, in your opinion, are the steps to perfecting a trick? In other words, what do you go though when you create a trick to make it unique and the best it can be?

What are the qualities a good performer (specifically magic) should have or express to be considered a good performer?

Where do you see the magic scene as a whole in 10 or 20 years?


That's it for me. Hope you guys have fun with this one and I really want to hear the answers. Ive been having a really bad day today so this will be something nice to look forward to.

Do you actually know any martial arts?

Would you ever consider becoming an official t11 artist?

You have said that your parents really supported you as you learnt magic. What do you have to say to those who don't receive any such support?

1) You are known as one of the most innovative minds in magic today, with many ingenious tricks. I have always wondered (an if you don't answer this, will still wonder) what is your favorite trick, out of all of them. Or, to make it easier, which do you perform the most?

question

1. How would you recommend drawing in an audience on the streets or in a public place without seeming to pushy, annoying, lame, etc.?

2. Are there any specific tricks or effects (not performers or magicians) that have influenced your magic and/or continue to influence your magic to this day?

3. In a lot of your effects, there is definatly an emphasis on intricate and/or knacky sleights. Personally, do you care more about the outcome of the effect, the mechanics behind it, or is there a balance to which you enjoy more?

Here's my question: Daniel I love your effects and methods, are you ever going to join the Theory11 artists Officially? If you are, can you give us a hint of what you might consider releasing first?

on Theory11.
3.) Which matters more to you: (a.) if a trick is impromptu or gimmicked or (b.) the overall impact the trick to your audience?
Basically, are you willing to sacrifice the sense of purity and openness of an impromptu effect for a gimmicked, yet more impactive performance?
Or does the purity of an impromptu effect enhance the performance?
