Who Is John?
John has been immersed in magic for almost 2 decades. At just 13 years old, his father showed him the classic “cut and restored rope” trick and the rest shall we say is history!
At the age of just 17, John landed his first paying gig at his local Italian restaurant where he was asked to perform close up magic to their dine-in customers. Once the word spread of John’s amazing skills with cards and coins, he constantly found himself performing at local birthday parties.
A few short years after, John hit the corporate scene, performing his astonishing close up magic to some of the big names in business such as the CBA, LJ Hooker and Westfield.
Over the last 18 years and after 1000’s of performances, John has fine-tuned his sleight-of-hand skills which are sure to impress all your guests at your next important event!
