Biography

There aren't many doctors who perform as magicians of an evening, but I find magic and medicine a good mix and an excellent creative outlet.

Born in Nottingham 1986, Jonathan attended Nottingham High School where he began to kindle his longstanding interest in magic under the mentorship of Richard Gardiner, Member of the Inner Magic Circle. 

His first professional performances were at the Lakeside restaurant at Papplewick in 2002. From these early performances he gained recognition in the Nottingham area, performing for clients such as Travis Perkins, CapitalOne, The YMCA, TGI Friday's and Nottinghamshire Law Society as well as a number of charities and numerous private parties and weddings. 

Jonathan graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery degree from Newcastle University in 2010 and now lives and works in the North East as a doctor specialising in Palliative Medicine. His unique brand of close-up performance has earned him a place in the prestigious Newcastle Magic Circle.

A new-thinker in his field, he also works on designing new magic effects. Recent international publications have been widely acclaimed, even featuring in television performances by top artists of the genre.
