Encyclopedia Of Magic is a friendly community that teaches magic. No matter what stage you are at, whether it be a complete beginner or an experienced magician, we are dedicated to helping people all over the world improve themselves and their magic.
Magic is a unique skill-set that has the power to change lives. It is able to produce amazing reactions and entertain everyone around you. Being able to let someone forget all their worries and experience a moment of true wonder is a gift that very few things can offer.
Not only providing amazing entertainment for everyone around you, magic is a valuable asset that can greatly benefit the performer themselves. With magic, you can really stand out and command the attention of countless people. At the same time, this greatly increases confidence and gives you the ability to really make and leave a lasting impression upon anyone. These are all traits that we believe anyone can benefit from, and it is our mission to make this available for anyone wanting to take themselves to the next level.
We are committed to providing top quality tutorials in clear, comprehensive, and structured lessons. Learning in a fun, positive environment is key to rapid learning and growth, and we strive to consistently provide that within our friendly community.
Now... A little about us personally :)
The Team at Encyclopedia of Magic
Well first of all there are 4 of us :) Vinh, Jeff, Lenny & William
Hi guys! My name's Vinh Giang and you all will most likely recognise me by my hands, lol. I have recently put my career in accounting aside to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher in the Art of Magic. I was born in South Australia but my background is half Vietnamese and half Chinese. I picked up Magic as a hobby just over 6 years ago and to be completely honest it was love at first sight! Magic has honestly changed my life. Growing up as a young boy I had little confidence and went through a very rough childhood. So as a young adult I really struggled to find my feet, I felt as if I had nothing special and unique. This feeling quickly diminished once I performed my first magic trick. Thinking back now it's absolutely amazing what magic can make you feel, but more importantly it's about how magic can make others feel. I could not have gotten this far without the support of my loving family who have been by my side every step of the way, of course my lovely partner who supports me unconditionally and last but not least my two best friends Lenny and Jeff who I am so happy are on this journey with me. There is nothing like it to be travelling on a journey with your two best mates. Some random trivia: I have two dogs: Simba and Nala; I LOVE sauce of all kinds; and my favourite colour is Blue :D
Hello everyone! My name is Jeffrey Wong, but just Jeff is fine :P I was born in the crazy, hectic city of Hong Kong, but migrated to Australia at the age of five. Currently I work as a pharmacist, but since we began our journey with Encyclopedia of Magic I feel like I am really finding my passion and reaching further towards my dreams. Magic has opened my eyes to a whole different aspect of connection with people. As a health care professional, I support people with their illnesses and ailments every day, and yet I find that I am only having an impact on them at a superficial level. Since I began magic, it has taught me how someone's state of mind can be changed very quickly, and how you can give them an experience that they will remember for a very long time, if not the rest of their lives. I believe that being able to share such a wonderful experience with other people and being a positive influence should be something that more people are involved with. Together with Vinh and Lenny, this is the vision that we are realising right now! In my own time, I love to play games! Ever since I was little I have always loved gaming, and it hasn't changed! Aside from that, you may also find me sweating it out at the gym or doing any number of other non-sensical things... My favourite colour is white! (I know it isn't really a colour...) :D
Hey everyone! My name is Lenny Tran. Like Vinh, I am half Vietnamese and Chinese born in South Australia. I currently work as a hospital pharmacist and I cannot say I hate my job because I still enjoy seeing a sick patient getting better and going home. So I guess helping people is what I enjoy and to be part of Encyclopedia of Magic, I feel that I'm helping people in a different way. I've always been fascinated with magic ever since I was a child but like typical asians, studies quickly took over my life and my hobbies basically went out of the door. Now that I'm a young adult, I decided to live life with no regrets and pursue my hobby with my two best mates, Jeff and Vinh. Who can say they have lived and started a great thing with their mates? At EOM, I am the person behind the camera and take care of tasks behind the scenes but you will see me making appearances in some videos =P I am also a beginner magician but who better to have as a teacher than Vinh right?! My favourite sport is basketball but in general I just love sports! I am a true believer of looking after your health because really without it you have nothing. My favourite colour is also blue =D
Hey guys, My Name is William Chen and I'm the fourth member to join on the EOM Team. I was born in Shanghai, China but came to Australia when I was pretty young, so like the other 3 guys, I pretty much sound Australian. My magic journey started about 5 years ago, when I first stumbled onto an ambitious card dvd. I learnt a few tricks but my interest slowly faded. Then at the end of 2011, I went to this magic show at the Sydney Opera House called "The Illusionists" and it reignited my passion for magic, and this is when I found Encyclopedia of Magic! I immediately feel in love with the quality of the tutorials and the classic EOM humor we all love so much. Having a strong background in online marketing (having worked with many of the top brands/companies in Australia), I realised that I have skills and knowledge that the EOM team could use. Combined with my entrepreneurial spirit and passion for business (I started my first online business when I was 12!) I just felt I had to become a part of this great project. So here I am, together with Vinh, Jeff and Lenny, I look forward to taking EOM to the next level :)
