I have a background in teaching including the Headship of a primary school in North Somerset. On taking early retirement from the teaching profession I was able to take up my hobby of conjuring on a full time basis. As well as being a Member of The Inner Magic Circle I have lectured and entertained throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A and the UK. I have also lectured and appeared at The Magic Castle, Hollywood on five occasions and presented my Close Up Magic Show there on just over 100 occasions. I have also been able to present my magic for some of the U.K’s leading companies at trade exhibitions and other corporate events. On leaving the teaching profession I used my experience in education to devise THE MAGIC OF SCIENCE show. Since its inception some twenty years ago I have visited over 600 primary and secondary schools throughout the UK. As you will see below, this is also an alternative to my ART OF THE MAGICIAN talk. During my teaching career I was very active in encouraging children to participate in sporting events and was awarded the MCC Cricket Coaching Certificate and was thrilled to receive it from the world famous cricketer Sir Garfield Sobers. I also trained and obtained my football referee’s qualification. I am married, have two grown up children and three grandchildren.
