I’ve decided I’m M.A.D.

How do you sum up what you do, and who you are when asked?

You know, when you’re around the table with new folks and everybody says a bit about who they are. See, as a magician, I have the advantage of being able to show what I do (e.g. do a trick!) but then folks can often think, ‘He’s a big-headed b’stard’… so I can instead roll off some of the projects and things I’ve done, but if you talk for too long, they think, ‘He’s a big-headed b’stard’…

So…

I’ve decided to introduce myself to folks by telling them I’m M.A.D.

Magician, Artist, Designer.

Magician = there’s the shows, talks, events, online magic school blah, blah, blah…

Artist = illustrator and visualiser and manager of artist Jen Allen blah, de blah…

Designer = creator of my range of bespoke statement illusion furniture.

Think I can do that in about 20 seconds and leave the conversation open for follow-ups… or will they now think, ‘He’s a MAD b’stard’?!

How do you sum up your life in a sentence?
