About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live faust, die jung

ABOUT ME

I'm a travelling magician, check out my website www.catchmagic.com. Currently I'm settled in Stockholm and have just completed a tour of theatres. I'm currently gearing up for a second tour.

PHILOSOPHY

I have quite a bit of strange ideas of how I want to live. I have been nomadic for a long time and enjoy a life-long quest to understand more and more of the world.

One thing I constantly have to re-learn is that something is not true just because people think it is. Our world is still full of weird myths and life-destroying conventions.

Interests

Quantum physics, ghost hunting and eating ice lollies. Swing dancing Lindy Hop madness. Backgammon. Magic. Performance. Variety shows. Comedy. Coffee. Comics. Conundrums. Consistency.

Music, Movies & Books

Cohen brothers, Wachowski brothers, Marx brothers. The second entry is a half-bluff.

Old jazz, swing, ragtime and early 1980s American punk rock. Ella, Billie, Nina and Louis. Big rude jake. Lavay Smith and her Red Hot Skilletlickers.

Paul Auster. Phillip K Dick. Douglas Hofstadter. Douglas Coupland. Alan Moore.

I also love pop-science books with real scientific underpinnings. Such as "Guns germs & steel" by Jared Diamond, "59 seconds" and "Quirkology" by Professor Richard Wiseman and "Sex at dawn" by Ryan and Jethá.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

A huge manta ray at thirty meters depth slowly moving above my head like some sort of space ship.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach juggling and I guess I have also learned some stuff about living being nomadic on the road nonstop most of my adult life.
