I started teaching myself magic while still at university in Australia.
A few months later and I had my first job performing as a resident magician in a restaurant.
Not long after that, I joined a cabaret dinner show where I worked alongside other magicians, singers and dancers.
I created my own stage show and began performing to clients internationally.
I then moved home to London where I joined the magic circle and now work as a full-time magician.

Watching Rendall perform his close up was also a delight, not only visually, but just listening to his eloquent control of the English language is enough to leave you in a trance.

I have seen Max perform several times. He has a natural talent, which combined with his charm and winning smile is guaranteed to attract admiration for his truly amazing range of tricks, which certainly leave me stunned and full of admiration.

We had the pleasure of performing at a London private members club on the same night that Max was doing some magic. He was charming and took the time to do a few tricks on us, which were mind-blowing. And we thought we were the 'hand of god'. Guaranteed to amaze and entertain in equal measures.

'Magic Max was highly recommended by a friend to attend a dinner party at St James' Palace Officers Mess, as part of an annual dinner. Max was a fantastic entertainer; he arrived early and set the tone with a string of amazing tricks and jokes that kept us in stitches. Later in the night, another round of faultless tricks and jokes left us amazed. He was simply fantastic, and the tricks and jokes are still discussed by my friends today.'
Alex Bayliss – Captain of the Royal Guard
Not only did you capture minds, hearts, aces, and spades, you left us with an indelible print not at, but 'on' our fingertips. You brought gasps and applause with the purity of your magic. Thank you for that WOW factor Maximillian (We can categorically say – 'you are most definitely one in a million'.)

Always my favourite magician to book! Never ceases to get everyone screaming with delight!
At the start of the lockdown, my 16 year old and I decided it would be fun to use the time to learn some card tricks and with it sleight of hand, etc. We met Max via a network we are part of and signed up to five one-on-one Zoom lessons, which we loved! Max was really excellent at pitching these at the right level and as well as teaching us various sleights, flourishes and tricks, was very good at explaining the art of performing these. Both Maddie and I would recommend Max strongly to anyone looking to learn card magic or, indeed post lockdown, looking for a magician for an event. Rory
Max is a brilliant magician - engaging, enthusiastic and knowledgeable: all make for an amazing magic teacher. My son is entranced and is now a confirmed card-trick-crazy teenager! We would throughly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn some clever, fun and mind-blowing tricks!!
The only regret I have about learning Magic from Max, is that I didn't do it sooner. I'm now able to whip out a few impromptu magic effects at a moments notice and always have a way to entertain my mates at the bar, brilliant stuff, great chap. Well worth the investment!
Really enjoyed my lessons with Max! A great teacher and very inspiring. Most of all the lessons are fun, engaging and I really hope to be impressing my friends with my new skills very soon!
I've had Max perform at many events over the years, but one of the best decisions I ever made was to have him teach magic to my children. They are both quickly turning into little performers and I cannot thank Max enough for his professionalism and skill and managing them!
Cannot recommend highly enough!
Maximillian is amazing, he has taught me some really cool tricks to use and gave me lots of ideas which I've incorporated into my sales pitch to clients. He was professional, patient and has a wide range of knowledge and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher, thank you, Max!
