How it all began...

Although Sam had a fascination with magic throughout his childhood Sam’s career as a magician started, at the age of 18, as a busker on the streets of Adelaide, South Australia.

For hours on end Sam would stand on the street trying to entertain passers by. After feeling like he had outgrown the streets of Adelaide Sam took on the advice of other artist and began to travel with his newly developed skills as a busker. 

Encouraged by his 2014 win in the Australian Street Entertainment Championships, Sam took his act to 17 different countries, making his show one of Australia’s most valuable exports.

Although you can still catch Sam street performing on the odd occasion, he has since shifted his efforts on creating stage and close up magic experiences for festivals, theatres and private/corporate events.
