About Me

Thanks for clicking to get to know more about me.

“One of my greatest joys is to see people amazed through magic, to take people back to that child like state of wonder for a few moments”

My journey started in 1987 when I was born and raised in Blackburn, Lancashire and I still reside in the North West. I have a degree in Sports Journalism and have a real love for sports, particularly football, cricket and American football. As much magic as I know, It will never make Blackburn Rovers good!

Outside of watching sport I enjoy reading (Harry Potter, strangely enough, is my favourite series), music, films, tattoos, comedy (Lee Mack is a genius),drinking too much tea and having my hair random colours.


My journey into magic….

“Our potential to create is limitless”
-David Blaine-

started when I first saw Derren Brown do his TV special ‘seance’ in the early 2000’s. Derren is a fantastic performer who has a background in magic before he moved into mentalism and it really struck me how hard he works at his craft and that he openly admits he has no psychic powers.

This lead to me watch more magicians: David Blaine, Penn and Teller, and Mark Mason (to name but a few) and start learning about card magic, illusion and mentalism and continues to this day.

David Blaine once said: “Our potential to create is limitless” and this sums up everything magic means to me. It allows my creative side to come out and to show people that anything is possible.

Mohawk Magic is my opportunity to show how much I love magic and to take people back to that child like state of wonder for a few moments. Magic is a great icebreaker and performing gives me the chance to meet a whole range of different people around the UK and allow them the chance to experience that amazement, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Thank you for considering Mohawk Magic!

Taking the time to get to know me more and view my website means a lot.  If you need anymore information don’t hesitate to get in touch and I will respond as soon as possible.
