About Hugh Shields

My name is Hugh Shields, also known as Hughdini :)

I have been doing magic since the age of 7 when my grandmother gave me a magic set for Christmas.

My interest is particularly in card magic. Reflecting Houdini's early career interest in cards, I decided to take the stage name Hughdini - it usually gets a smile! I am interested in card magic of all types but especially fascinated in effects which play on the mathematical properties of cards. 

I also do memory effects and competed in the World Memory Championships in 2013 for Scotland. I hold one Scottish memory record.
