About Andre Hermanus

What is seen is a blend of reality, imagination, and impossibility.

Early beginnings:

At the age of six Andre had a brief interest in magic, but due to a lack of resources his interest waned – it resurfaced in 1987.

In 1997 he had a five year hiatus in magic due to studies towards his business administration degree. Around 2004 he transitioned from a hobbyist to a part-time professional magician.

His very first gig was through an agent who booked him to perform close-up magic at Zwartkops Raceway. In 2015, after a lucrative 36 year career, he left engineering to pursue his passion in magic and mentalism.

Andre has a degree in business administration and a diploma in electrical engineering and previously worked as an operational specialist/team leader for a large ICT Company as a digital network engineer.

He has attended and completed various training modules ranging from embedded software design, coaching, to leadership skills.

This together with his experience as a practitioner of magic since 1987 equips him with a thorough understanding of the corporate environment and sensitivity towards people.

Andre was the runner up in the South African Magic championships 2008. He is a member of the Inner Circle and a licensed radio amateur affiliated to the South African Radio League.
