About Dan

My love of magic started as a child watching the Paul Daniels Magic Show and being fascinated by all the tricks that he would perform. I was bought a Magic set for my tenth birthday I spent hours and hours practicing and I started to learn how the magic was performed. I also remember the trick my father did producing a coin from behind my ear as I looked on in amazement at how he managed it.

Since then I have spent time studying the art of magic and its many forms including watching other Magicians, such as; Jay Sankey, Michael Ammar, Aldo Colombini, David Blaine, Derren Brown, Dynamo, and many more. Speaking to Aldo years ago made me realize that magic was for me. He spoke about magic with such passion and enthusiasm that his words resonated and they have stuck with me since.

It was a chance meeting with a Magician from Grimsby that I realized a lifelong ambition of becoming a professional Magician and the rest as they say is history. Working with him to perfect my technique really helped me on the road to becoming professional.

I am also a Member of the Hull Magicians Circle which next year will be celebrating its 90th anniversary.
