My name is Johnny Wu. I am a mentalist, magician and a speaker. 14 years ago I was an exchanged student in Canada. At 12 years old I was by lonely and couldn’t speak a single word of English. I was bullied and picked on by the 8th grader. That experience destroyed my self-esteem and confidence as a young boy. Until one day I discovered magic as a universal language. Magic had the potential to give me a new identity so I can "fit in" at school. Fast forward 14 years I am now 27 years old. Without any magician mentor, I've studied ancient Chinese mysticism, sleight of hand, modern technology, mind reading, hypnotism and I can now truly provide an experience of "Real Magic" with a twist of modern technology. Magic has been life changing for me as a young entrepreneur. Magic had given me a chance to make friends, to make my Asian parents proud, to have the ability to marry the girl I love, and to provide a decent life for my new daughter. Now, I would like to use the same magic that changed my life to change people's perspective and influence people's belief. Real magic lives without all of us and I will help the audiences discover that!
SURPRISE FLASH MOB MARRIAGE PROPOSAL
"I am a happily married man of two years and a new baby daughter (she's adorable). I know my baby face makes me look like I am still in High School but I am actually almost 30 years old! I try to keep things interesting utilizing my creativity through magic in every part of my life including my social life, love life, and my career. I am often asked, "What do you like most about magic?" I always have a blast interacting and engaging with the audience when I'm on stage but nothing beats the feeling of performing up close and personal with people, leaving them with a look of shock on their face with each new piece of magic. On or off the stage, I love meeting new people and sharing new and exciting experiences. I am proud of my unique style of entertainment through magic and wish to share it with the world."

Many people asked me: "So did you marry that girl you propose to?" Yes, I did. Now we have a beautiful little girl. Having a child is such a life-changing experience for me, and it reminds me of how amazing human beings are. We can create life! I can't wait to share my magic with my daughter, and maybe she will become a baby magician in a couple of years :)
