My name is Sef Hapita but you can call me Ernest for short. I've been doing magic since 2006 and doing it professionally from 2012. With superb sleight of hand, uncanny performing style, and ridiculously insane approach to magic, my acts amongst others are most anticipated by laymen and co-magicians alike. Honed by years of solid street magic experience, I can bring awesome skills on stage. Considered as one of the requested performers of The Story Circle - the largest and one of the top magic groups in the Philippines.

  • Performer since: 2013
