Best known for his incredible award-winning tricks and performances in the Magic community for the last 25 years, Craig has risen through many challenges and achieved success like no other.

Magic Scene also awarded him the distinction of being "The Performer to Watch in 2009". Craig was also the former co-host of the Wizard Product Review, the largest magic review show in the World.


Across the years Craig has published some of the best selling products ever released to magicians. Having created over 30 instructional DVDs on the art of magic, Craig’s tuition has been a huge hit worldwide. Craig is also a member of the Inner Magic Circle and was one of the only magicians to ever be invited to join Magic Circle as AIMC with a Silver Star.

"Craig did a fantastic job in entertaining our guests during arrival drinks at our reception venue, and my husband and I received lots of positive feedback about him on the day. I think it's great he used tricks that meant a lot of guests ended up with keepsakes e.g. A bent 10p coin, to remember the day! Thank you - it was definitely a talking point of our wedding and we were well entertained!"
