Montreal Gazette Profile

Today, I’m grateful for this profile of my work in the wonderful worlds of magic and circus. Ever since Nathan showed me the first trick that truly mystified me, I’ve worked to learn as much as possible about how to create similar magical experiences for others. Why are we humans are so fascinated by displays of what seems impossible? What is magic? The exploration of these questions continues to be a meaningful journey. There have been many serendipitous moments along the way: discovering a magic shop in my hometown (Grand Illusions), seeing Quidam in Berkeley, California, at 16, meeting David Ben and Julie Eng in Toronto, meeting circus scholar Dr. Patrick Leroux at Concordia University, collaborating with Patrice Aubertin, Daniela Arendasova and Eric Langlois at the National Circus School, learning from Boris Verkhovsky at Cirque du Soleil, and benefiting from the wisdom and guidance of so many extraordinary people in this alternative universe that we somehow inhabit.
