Q: How did you get started performing in the events industry?

Q: Most memorable moment when working?
A: When I was performing an intricate routine with a cup and a ball, and someone at the table decided to lift the cup and reveal the secret, just when I was gearing myself up for the ‘tadaaa’ moment!!!
