Maximilian's first exposure to magic was at school, aged 9. His fascination was sparked because of his math’s teacher Andrew Jeffrey, who used to perform tricks during class.
HAMLEY’S TOY SHOP
Having stuck with magic all throughout his schooling years, knowing that was exactly what he wanted to do. Maximilian decided to leave college early at the age of 17 and became a demonstrator for Marvin's Magic in Hamleys, “The world's most famous toy shop” in London! It was there through training and mentoring by Bruce Smith, a living legend in the magic world, that he really honed his skills as a performer.
After two successful years at Hamley's, Maximilian left to become a full-time professional magician! Living in Hove, East Sussex where he is from, Maximilian was booked all across the south and became established as a top performer for weddings, private parties and corporate events!
THE MAGIC CIRCLE
At the age of 19, Maximilian applied, auditioned and got accepted into The Magic Circle.
Formed in 1905, The Magic Circle is an exclusive magic club in Euston, London.
It has 1500 members worldwide, including David Blaine, Derren Brown, Dynamo and even HRH Prince Charles.
At the age of 23 after four strong years of performing, Maximilian realised he was in a bit of a rut and wasn’t satisfied with just doing gigs anymore. His dream since a young boy has always been becoming a famous magician! He wanted bigger!
So at the beginning of 2018 Maximilian traveled to Los Angeles, California, where he lived for 3 months!
It was the most exciting and invigorating time ever. He met so many passionate artists in the music industry, in fashion and plenty of aspiring actors! His fire and love for magic was reignited and he was able to see a real vision for his future!
As you can imagine, he ended up performing at some pretty cool parties up in the Hollywood Hills and even got invited to the green room of James Corden's "Late Late Show", where he met the team and performed some magic!
