For the last decade Matt has worked with over 100 schools and universities a year presenting his unique science magic (when it’s not a global pandemic year). He previously conducted atomic physics research at Durham University before working within the Education department at Thinktank Science Museum, Birmingham. Alongside this, he has spent the last 20 years working as a magician and is an Associate of the Inner Magic Circle – one of only 300 people in the world to hold this distinction. In 2020 he won second place in the international Best Illusion of the Year Contest. He runs the www.wordsonwonder.com project which features a host of interviews with scientists, magicians, philosophers, explorers, and artists, to find out what really makes them curious. Matt is a Fellow of the PSAUKI, past president of the West Midlands region and a finalist in the Speaker Factor competition.
