What interested you in Magic?

When I was 12 years old I had a Magic set and I used to perform shows to my family. My love of Magic and performance grew from there!

What interested you in Burlesque?

When I first saw Burlesque I knew instantly that it was what I wanted to do. The art of using your sexuality to take your audience through a journey of tease and anticipation appealed to me so much. I also love the costumes, so glamorous!

What gave you the idea to incorporate both of them together?

I love Magic and I love Burlesque so mixing my two passions seemed perfect for me.

What is the biggest challenge you face with this line of career?

As with any career there are challenges you must over come. This is why I love it so much! I like to challenge and push myself.

Determination is crucial in the performance industry, as you have to keep pushing yourself to be bigger and better. Last but not least, Be kind. No one likes a nasty person.

Many people inspire me. My biggest inspirations include David Copperfield, David Blaine, Kat Von D and Dita Von Teese. Their business mind and passion for their art are inspirational.
