“We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.”
James apprenticed in magical artistry from the age of ten, and as soon as becoming thirteen, James became the youngest ever member of the Guild of Magicians.
During his teens, James was a member of a leading education theatre company; and performed on stage and television in theatre and magical arts, together with winning prestigious awards.
While moving into his twenties, his success at the Magic Circle’s Young Magician of the Year Competition led to being invited to perform in front of 4,000 international magicians.
This event was the world’s largest and most prestigious magic event and festival.
Here he received the title of ‘British Champion’ with the Young Magical Championships.
While studying at university for a politics and political philosophy degree in London and internships in parliament and political think tanks, James’ won more prestigious awards at the largest organisation for magical arts in the world.

He then spent a year performing in the southwest of England. After studying for a Master’s in International Law and working for legal departments within organisations and human rights NGOs in and outside the UK, he was also on a constant learning inquiry into the philosophical and practical approach to many areas of performing arts.
He then went on several retreats and discourses, which allowed him to develop further.
Throughout James’ twenties, nothing was more important than exploring how to integrate his study on creating perfect artistry.
He performed with television companies, theatres, organisations, universities, and many other areas of the intelligentsia.
