From there Damien took his unique skill set to the streets to perform for the unsuspecting public. Their reactions were unbelievable, sealing Damien’s fate as a professional magician.

He says: “There’s no better buzz than pulling off an amazing illusion right under someone. To watch their childlike wonder, there’s no other word to describe it but… magical.”

Honing his skills as both a showman and entertainer, Damien began gigging in local venues, until 2005, when an impromptu performance outside a London nightclub kick-started a chain of events that would catapult this young star into the big leagues.

Using his mystic arts and improvised style of magic, Damien managed to impress a certain club owner, so he would allow this talented young magician into his private party to wow his guest list of celebrities, reality TV stars and talent agents. Needless to say, Damien was a massive hit and was asked to become a regular fixture.

This spurred a domino effect within the showbiz party circuit, where Damien had free rein to showcase his abilities to some of the world’s most influential and famous celebrities.
