Mr Goodman first decided he wanted to become a magician at the age of 10, after watching American television series The Magician.

He was spellbound by what he saw, and became determined that he would be able to make others feel the same way some day.

He then dedicated years of his life learning the tricks of the trade, checking numerous books out of his local library, as well as designing illusions of his own.

'Over the years I have never stopped learning and perfecting my act.

'Having been able to spend so much time doing what I love, I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I do as a job.'
