My main infulences came from my family - my Dad did magic when he was younger.

My brother would show me that extremely well-known four kings trick where they all jump to the top of the deck after robbing a 'bank'.

Harry Houdini was my inspiriation to start learning and performing magic. David Blaine fueled my ambition to become better and increase my knowledge on the subject. :twisted:

My Dad used to have a mini plastic version of an 'Alotta water vase', a few self-working card tricks and small trick explanations you used to get with a packet of cigarettes.

When i was about 13 i got the ball and vase trick and fell in love but i never went through with it because i was 13 and there was nowhere to buy other tricks, So 8 years later I was up late and caught Blaine in Street Magic, said to myself that would be cool to be able to do. **this was like 6 months ago** So i guess you could say Blaine with the help of Angel, but now its more local like John Shyrock and my local shop willimas magic.
