hi after being at the Twistian lecture day in Birmingham I got to thinking who's who I recognized 1 or 2 faces but had no idea who the majority of the guy's were & because it was a lecture we had very little time to mix or introduce ourselves + Martin Duffy & I pooped out for lunch & missed that opportunity as well so to cut to the chase I thought I would start a topic of who's who on balloon chat the idea is to post a recent photo & short blog about yourself so I will kick it off

Hi everyone,

My name is Darren (aka nippy99) and my company is called MagicWorks Ltd (http://www.magicworks.ltd.uk) - I started magic as a hobby back in 1994 and it has got out of hand since then! I mainly perform children's parties but also do many weddings and corporate events performing balloon modelling and close-up magic. I spent around three years as a full-time entertainer but pre-empted the credit crunch and took a 'normal' job again so back to part-time.

Here is my ugly mug...

Sorry Darren I couldn't resist it.
Nice idea Dennis - Here is my picture and intro.
I started working with face paints and soon discovered the joy of balloon art. I offer full party plans including "The worst magic show in the Midlands" (its just a giggle) and entertain at weddings,. My main obsession is balloons of course. I like designing new models and have started to play with decor and fashion. The main problem I have is finding the time.

My name is Graham Lee and many years ago I was an electrician, went self employed when I was 21 and have always worked for myself. I got into installing burglar alarms and then had someone come to entertain at my daughter Kelly's 5th birthday party, her name was Dawn and I would like to thank Dawn for changing my life as I went off to the library to get some books out on magic and then started to do some shows while also doing some electrical work and the entertaining got busier so eventually I went full time. Met David Grist when we both travelled together for The Millennium Jam, David also changed my life again without realising it. We then started the care & share days and balloon chat followed. After all these years I still have the same buzz, love and excitement for balloons and entertaining. Apart from my family I also have three very special friends in my life who without there support many things that I have achieved would not have been possible, Mike Ingham, Pearse Halpenny and Thelma Levett.
