As an Engineer, I tend to search for the creative solutions outside the box. Magic is not only a hobby, it’s misdirection methods help in the creative innovation and development process. Magic is also a medium to express Art, a multicultural in its approach to the audience.
While growing up I didn't have access to Magic Shops. When I wanted to do a trick, I had to built props from item around the house. Now that I have access to any props in the world, I still prefer using the props that I personally build with everyday objects.
