My interest in magic began like many others at the young age of 8. Truth be told, at this age, everything seemed magical to me. I can remember being glued to the t.v. watching my very first David Copperfield special. I could not believe that someone could actually make the Statue of Liberty disappear! I didn’t know it at the time, but that first magical encounter would set the wheels in motion for a life-long passion for this wonderful art. Shortly thereafter, I received my very first magic set and began amazing family and friends with my trickery. I honed my skills over the next 8 years by performing at many birthday parties, daycare centers and festivals. By the time I was 16 however, my focus had shifted from magic to another passion in my life – Music. I began playing bass guitar and was in a successful Winnipeg band for more than 11 years. Although creating music was a great experience for me, and one that I will forever treasure, I continually felt a strong desire to return to my first true passion - Magic. Of course now that I am a bit older, I have decided to trade in the doves and illusions, and to focus mainly on the art of Mentalism; or as I like to call it - Mind Illusions. As a mentalist, my goal is to try and detect individual thoughts or thought processes, to explore them in context with other indicators or clues (body language, outward appearance, the tone of one's voice, eye contact), and to influence what a person will think. This is called "Power of Suggestion." Think of how Sherlock Holmes uses his keen observation skills when entering a room. This is the approach that I use. By creating a number of fun psychological experiments with my audience, I try and intercept their thoughts and find out what they're thinking.
