Charity Magician – no fee required

It was with delight I chanced upon a magician in Washington D.C. called Phil Telfeyan. Phil markets himself as a charity magician, sharing his skills and passion for magic free of charge to raise money for good causes. I interview Phil as part of my Magic Moments series of articles, just published in MagicSeen. Special thanks to MagicSeen for permission to reprint the article here.

wundre coming 2017

Really excited to be launching a new range of high-end luxury furniture in 2017. Inspired by magic & illusion, I’ve designed the first few pieces to be sure-fire talking points, that will add class and clout in any setting. Made to the highest standards by Master Craftesmen in the UK, Wundre will be launched in Spring 2017.

A lot of work has been happening behind the scenes and so watch this space for first news on the new – and world’s only – illusion furniture!

magic meets medicine!

So, what has a magician got to do with the medical profession? Actually, there’s a lot of cross-over. Magic used for therapy, magicians as healers and much, much more. But this occasion was my first dabble with organising a medical conference. ‘Osteopathic Philosophy & Principles in Practice’ took place on October 7th & 8th, presented by my friend Walter McKone. Walter is one of the world’s leading practitioners and authors in his field of medical expertise and I was thrilled when he approached me to use my expertise (a-hem!) to organise and market his first UK seminar.

Walter lectures worldwide to other medical professionals, and we’re now working on establishing his brand in the UK marketplace. With a ticket price reflective of his experience, an enthusiastic group of professionals traveled from across Europe to attend the event which took place near London.

The feedback has been amazing, and we’re now working on Walter’s next medical conference in Spring 2017, plus a new book aimed at the mainstream market.

Exciting times.

I know what i did last summer…

…I wrote a kids book. A magic, fantasy novel. It blends magic (both natural and conjuring) with the ‘Hero’s Journey’, good vs. evil, a bit of life philosophy thrown in for good measure, and… well, it’s got a few extra surprises I’ll hold back on here. The story is the first part of a trilogy (I think, although as the characters usually act it out in my mind and I write down what they do*, they may decide to go for more than three tales, or maybe less! Who knows?) and I’m keen to find a children’s illustrator who wishes to collaborate and see where we can take this.  If you’re interested, then please email me.

This post doesn’t have a picture to accompany it, hence needing an illustrator:-)
