Hi, and welcome to the ascent.

July 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

My name is Alex and I’ve been performing magic since I was thirteen. Now I’m 22, and despite having a full-time job, I’m trying to find more and more time for magic. This blog, Sleight Ascent, will be my attempt at recording my progress—part journal, part feedback mechanism for other magicians to comment on.

I started with the Royal Road to Card Magic back in middle school and now I’m finally cracking the classics, one slight at a time. Expert Card Technique, Card Control, Card College, and of course the legendary classic—The Expert at the Card Table.

I figure it’ll be good to have a record of how bad I sucked right now and how much better I can get in a short time. If you’re reading this, bravo. And welcome to a cavalcade of card triumphs and tribulations. (By the way the triumph pun was not intended)

Let’s get crack-a-lackin’.
