Looking back at my year in 2015 one of my highlights has got to be working with FC Barcelona and Brazilan Superstar Neymar Jr. Let me tell you the story!!

Before I took off to the spectacular city of Barcelona I was working on a campaign called ‘1 in 11’ with Lionel Messi and world renowned auctioneers Sotheby’s. The campaign harnesses the power of sport and education to help underprivileged children fulfill their potential, their powerful message is supported by the worlds top sporting stars including the FC Barcelona Foundation. It really was an honour to be involved!

After the campaign I was invited over to the club to meet the players and share my skills with what is undoubtably the greatest football team on the planet. I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with high profile players throughout my career but this was somewhat different, there is a real magic about the club and city and I felt it as soon as I arrived.

I had prepared some special tricks for my visit, after watching the players train I waited to be introduced. I must admit at this point I was feeling a little nervous, but once I got the ball out and started to freestyle with Neymar it was a great feeling. At the end I had prepared a trick where I change my shirt for his shirt, he was laughing and loved it! It was an honour to be part of the club and see why these players are so good at what they do. It was really clear that they work so hard and put so much time into their training and preparation but they haven’t forgotten the importance of having fun while playing the game, the joy they give off is contagious Check This Out. It really took me back to the reason why I do what I do, I always want to leave people in a happy mood once I have performed for them. For some people it’s amazement, others joy some people just want to pick up a ball and start to play…

A huge thank you to everyone at FC Barcelona!!
