When I worked as a journalist I met magicians and reviewed magic shows. I was on the judging panel at talent contests with the late Terry Seabroke who was a comedy magician. I have always loved entertainment and showbiz.

I started to go to magic conventions and learn about magic from lectures and courses. I first started by doing parties for friends’ children. It has been a fascinating journey.
