Rachel Colombini first became interested in magic a little bit later in life than most people, she was about 17 years old and filled out an application to join the magic club in Manchester (THE ORDER of THE MAGI). She was accepted and spent the next few years attending lectures and conventions.
She had risen through the ranks at the company she worked for and had a nice prestigious position, when the company asked for people to volunteer for downsizing. She been performing close-up magic at parties and events during these years on the side but she knew that this was not necessarily the direction she wanted to travel in.
She wanted to open a magic shop in her little market town and they gave her that option to open an indoor store, which she ran successfully in the early 90's.
After travelling to the US a number of times she began to apply for some US conventions as by this time she was selling her own line of handcrafted wood products and lecturing in various clubs. In 1998 she made another HUGE decision to move to the US permanently.
Another big change occurred in 2006 when she and Aldo, who had known each other since the very early 90's decided to declare their mutual love, which they had kept silent for many years. In December 2006 Rachel and Aldo were married in Italy and finally ended a very long wait that they had to be together and that is when the real magic in their lives began. Now they share their lives, their love and their own personal magic together bringing magic to those they perform to.
