Climate change and mental health are two of the most important topics in the world. Inspired by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, MAGICLY is dedicated to educating and raising awareness about these issues using sleight-of-hand magic as a method for content creation, live presentations, and fundraising.
EDDIE LOU: CO-FOUNDER
I began practicing magic when I was 11, and it quickly became a big passion of mine. I love using cards, coins, and Rubik's cubes to bring wonder and excitement to the audience. I am deeply involved with work in sustainability and mental health and am excited to combine them with magic to create engaging and informative content.
GAVIN YANG: CO-FOUNDER
I started learning magic when I saw Mat Franco perform on AGT. I enjoyed his charisma and delivery; but I really fell in love with magic when I saw Shin Lim for the first time. His combination of magic with art really drove me to take practicing seriously, instead of seeing magic of something people perform at birthday parties, it because something so beautiful and special. My magic combines both art and charisma to form something unique and entertaining. I'm really excited to be partnering with Eddie and sharing our magic with the world.

ANDREW TOLLMAN - MAGIC CONSULTANT
Just like German, magic is another way for me to communicate to people. The beauty is everyone can understand and appreciate it, which is why I started learning it 4 years ago. My main focus is card magic and exploring what a simple deck of 52 playing cards can do.
