Full Presenter Profile & Bio
High profile corporate entertainer, Phoenix, is known as Australia's TV Mentalist & Hypnotist, having performed many times on LIVE national television shows, including the Today Show, Studio 10 & the Morning Show.
He has advised on set of blockbuster Hollywood movies, training A-list celebrities in his craft, and received a standing ovation from audience & judges for his stunning water tank escape on Australia's Got Talent.
After receiving 5 star reviews for his 2 award winning shows at the 2015 Adelaide Fringe, Phoenix won his 2nd consecutive award from the 2015 Melbourne Magic Festival!
He now headlines the world's largest international cruise lines, as well as the world's only 6 star luxury cruise theatres with his unique and mind-blowing performances.

With these many years of experience, Phoenix has created a masterpiece portfolio of award winning shows specifically tailored to and designed for individual audience platforms, with his specialty being corporate events.
Not many entertainers can truly 'WOW' a corporate audience, and even less have such a high rate of turning sceptics into astounded believers. When it comes to booking an event, Phoenix presents a variety of options for all clientele to deliver the perfect entertainment experience for any event; including corporate workshops, weddings, private events, and more..
