Now known mostly as “Piff the Magic Dragon“.

He is a member of The Magic Circle (and inducted into their Inner Ring). He has won many awards, including Close up Magician of the Year (2011) and Stage magician of the year (2012).

In 2008, John created his Piff the Magic Dragon character, with his assistant “Mr Piffles” (his chihuahua).

He has performed (as Piff and Mr. Piffles) in many fringe art festivals. He has done magic consulting work (including for Penn and Teller).
