At the age of six André had a brief interest in magic, but due to a lack of resources his interest waned – it resurfaced in 1987. In 1997 he had a five-year hiatus in magic due to studies towards his business administration degree. Around 2004 he transitioned from a hobbyist to a part-time professional magician, through an agent who booked him to perform close-up magic at an event at Zwartkops Raceway. In 2015, after a lucrative 36-year career in the business world, André left engineering to pursue his passion for magic.

André has a degree in business administration and previously worked team leader for a large ICT company: this, together with his experience as a practitioner of magic, equips him with a thorough understanding and sensitivity towards people from all walks of life.

André was the runner up in the South African Magic Championships in 2008 in the Close-Up Magic division.
