While doing his computer science degree, Johnathan took classes on hacking and technology scams. This class was designed to look at this growing issue in the technology world and how we could protect and stop it happening to the average person. He even spent time as a "White Hat Hacker" to help local companies look at the weaknesses of computer systems they had been using to stop bad hackers from taking advantage. Learning to be a professional magician ment he had to learn how to pickpocket, trick and con people for entertainment reasons only. This "magic" training has taught him the details of mastering deception and misdirection. His father is also a policeman for 40 years and has helped in training Jo for this class topic from a policemans point of view.

Johnathan has been a martial arts expert since the age of 6. From the age of 16 he worked with various circus teams where he learned many skills. He has travelled the world performing for audiences including Formula 1 events, royalty and international superstars. He is a fully insured fire and magic performer with many skills including bubbleology, staff spinning, juggling and stilt walking, to name but a few. He also teaches these other skills if your interested in those classes. 

As a serial entrepreneur who founded three successful companies before the age of 30, my drive to succeed in life began in my teens when he realised the power of positive motivation. 
"I was lucky enough to have a good mentor who guided me through the intricacies of magic and showmanship. I aim to pass that on to the next generation." 

He holds a Bachelors degree and also teaches conversational English to children and adults across the world.
