Joan Caesar Presenting Lifetime Achievement Award to Guy Camirand
|Born||Guy D. Camirand|
Guy Camirand is a Montreal-based Harvard Business School graduate who founded the Camirand Academy of Magic in 1978 as an avocation.
In 1990, he left a career as a business consultant for large corporations and the government of Quebec to run the Academy, and perform magic, full time. He's a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians' Order of Merlin.
A few of his original effects have also been marketed, including The Automatic Coffee Stirrer, a close-up paddle trick, and Lightning Strike, a mental effect in which the magician focuses his "mental energy" at a match at his fingertips, whereupon it lights (this is a co-creation with Patrick Reymond).
