Hello All,

So let me introduce myself. My name is Marek Tomanek 31 years old and I come from a small country in Europe from Slovakia (not Slovenia - different country πŸ˜‰ ). I have been doing magic almost 2 years. 

First I would like to set an image. In my country card magic or any close up acts are not so popular as an entertainment so it is quite hard to get to some magic. But I love magic since I was a child and saw David Coperfield in couple of his stage acts. Also when internet and youtube mostly showed me the close up card tricks and all the close up acts and fell in love with it. 

So 2 years back I have decided that I want to learn this and to start entertaining at least my friends and family. I bought couple of books and here I am πŸ˜‰ 

Also my very first trick performed - was a version of follow the queen and on the revelation there I wrote my proposal to my girlfriend - she said yes and we are getting married this september πŸ˜‰ 

Also to get you closer to what I like. My favorite magicians in no order are : Dai Vernon, Ed Marlo, Harry Lorayne, Darwin, Ortiz, Michael Vincent, Jason Ladanye, Daryl, Bill Malone.

To close this up - I am just an hobbyist magician not a full time professional but I love magic and love the reactions of people to the magic. Since in my country it is hard to find a magic group I hope I will engage with you guys/girls in some interesting topics.

Have a lovely day πŸ˜‰

Welcome! It's nice to have a Slovakian magician here. It's interesting to me that David Copperfield's capturing of our imaginations was a magical entry point for so many of us. I'm sure you'll enjoy this forum as much as I already have.
