How I started in Magic: Just cards?

I didn’t start out doing cards. I started out doing all kinds of magic, taking take part in competitions as a wee lad. Starting out, I performed linking rings, rope tricks, coin tricks, you name it; I worked my way through Tarbell.

Nowadays, I have a reputation for working with a deck of cards. In all honesty, I am surprised anyone cares about what I do; let alone cares enough to watch my YouTube videos and buy my downloads. That said, I am really grateful to everyone who does.

It seems a lot of people don’t know about my history without cards, I thought it would be a great time to share few things I’ve found in my collection. Very recently I found the first trick I ever bought from Roy Walton. It was still in its original box: A Tenyo trick called Squeeze Play.

My latest vlog shows me performing Squeeze Play and a few other blasts from when I was getting started in magic.

Beginners Workshop

On 3rd April 2021 I am hosting a beginners workshop. Delivered via Zoom and limited to just 15 people; it will focus on the fundamentals with cards. I hope to provide a great foundation for any learner plus some finesses for the more seasoned card handler.

It should run for about 3-4 hours, with opportunities for you to show me what you’re doing and get feedback. And, just like an in person workshop, it will be interactive so you can get the most value from your time.

If you’d be interested in taking part, please read more about it here.
