Performer for the 2023 Christopher Awards -

The Magic of Tim Wright as Skilldini

"A magician, whose visual feats seem to violate the laws of nature and reason, finds no language or cultural barriers as one travels around the world. Magic challenges the imagination, stimulates audiences to think - gives them the opportunity to relax and escape from the problems of reality."
