A long time devotee to classy vintage styles, Simone brings the sights and sounds of the 60s to her magic, not often seen (unless you watch a lot of videos of magic
from the 60s.) A mix of visual, card, and mentalism effects make up her repertoire. Simone is a member of the prestigious Academy of Magical Arts at the Magic Castle where she performs in one of the main showrooms, The Parlour of Prestidigitation. For four years she was a board member for the Women Magicians Association and The Academy of Magical Arts' Women In Magic committee. She writes reviews of magic books, videos and props for The Linking Ring monthly magic magazine.
Simone is available for strolling or close-up magic which sees the magician wowing guests at your party or event with intimate, one-on-one magical experiences,
entertaining small clusters of people throughout the evening.
Much of Simone's performance experience is in parlour magic which are larger effects than seen in close-up settings. Parlour shows are suited to moderately sized
audiences for variety or cabaret shows in clubs or small theatres, but also homes or parties. Parlours were where magicians would entertain in Victorian homes.
