Illusionist Jack Daniels was the one left surprised, shocked and delighted when he was named the Sydney Hills Business Person of the Year at an awards ceremony during the week.

The main award of the night followed his win in Performing Arts Category earlier in the evening in the hotly contested Sydney Hills Business Awards.

The father of two from Baulkham Hills has been creating and performing magic and Illusions for over 20 years and it has taken him around the world.

He is the Australian ambassador for DAVID COPPERFIELD’s Project Magic, a not for profit organisation that uses magic to help aid in the therapy process for those with disabilities.

He has performed all over the world using theatrical magic and grand Illusions with humour and charm which he uses to great effect in his Grand Illusion shows and his Close-Up Magic.

He is also a big supporter of charities including the Cancer Council. He said he was thrilled the double wins on Wednesday at The Sydney Hills Business Awards which attracted hundreds of entries.

“(It was) such an amazing moment for us especially in during such difficult times for the entertainment industry.” He told the Hills to Hawkesbury Community News.
