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 at a foreign country alone and couldn’t speak a single word of English. I was bullied and picked on by the 8th graders. That experience destroyed my self-esteem and confidence as a young boy. Until one day I discovered magic as a universal language. Magic gave me a new identity so I could "fit in" at school and actually start to make friends and gain confidence. 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(this is real magic), to have the ability to marry the girl I love, and to provide a decent life for my new born daughter. Now, I would like to use the same magic that changed my life to change people's perspective and influence people's belief. When people hire me, they are not just hiring a typical magician. They are hiring someone who can provide a REAL MAGIC experience for their guests! Because human brain remember experiences, specially if you are experiencing for the first time. If I can provide a crazy experience for your guests to experience it for the first time then they will never forget where it happen, at YOUR EVENT! (Wink)
MY 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 on stage but nothing beats the feeling of performing up close and be 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 :)
