Listen as Jay covers a whole lot of ground talking philosophy, creativity and how magicians have lost their way. Find out why he believes sleight of hand magic is about Bending The Real.

Jay was born in 1963, in Montreal, Canada and moved to Toronto with his family shortly thereafter.
He was given a magic set for his 11th birthday and soon began experimenting with sleight of hand at the age of 14. In 1980, he launched “Sankey Magic” and at the rebellious age of 17 invented his very first marketed trick, entitled “Smash.” Jay has worked as a consultant for many of today’s most popular magicians, including David Copperfield,Criss Angel and David Blaine.
