Deftly employing the psychology behind sleight of hand, hypnosis and misdirection, Sean Borland always leaves his audience awed and laughing.

Audiences love good magic because it’s oh so much more than just a trick. It is sleight of mind, and that is what first captured Sean’s interest in the connection between magic and body language at age 24. Deftly employing the psychology behind sleight of hand, hypnosis and misdirection he always leaves his audience awed and laughing.

Sean’s corporate audiences have included executives of Coca-Cola, Tullet Prebon, UNICEF, Volkswagen, the Macquarie group, and Madame Tussauds™ in Sydney, Australia. Since June 2015 he has been the resident magician and body language trainer for the Nihiwatu Resort on Sumba Island. Sean has also led workshops at the Hariharalaya Resort in Cambodia and has also served as a consultant for the Paul Dubrule Hospitality School in Siem Reap.

He is originally from Scotland and speaks fluent English, Greek, and Spanish as well as conversational Khmer.
