I am a professional full-time close-up, sleight-of-hand magician based in Edinburgh, specializing mainly close-up card magic, but also magic with everyday objects (a ring, lego, chocolate bars, lollipops, etc…). I also do some mind reading too. I am well known for making various objects disappear and reappear in impossible locations.
I perform at weddings, corporate events, dinners, charity occasions, bars/restaurants and festivals throughout Scotland and beyond. The type of magic I provide mostly is strolling magic round small groups of people and/or sitting at a table. I am a family entertainer, provide magic for adults and young people (aged 7/8 years upwards). I am not children’s entertainer.
I have had the pleasure of performing for some well known companies, including EY, Royal Bank of Scotland, J.P. Morgan, PWC, Deloitte, Lloyds Banking Group, Standard Life Aberdeen, Baillie Gifford, Scottish Whisky Association, Glenmorangie, William Grant & Sons, Glasgow Science Centre and National Museum of Scotland. I am also resident close-up magician at the world famous Pleasance Courtyard during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and resident magician at HebCelt Festival (Stornoway).
