Born to Engineer - Adrian Westaway

Everything you touch, see and interact with has been engineered and designed. But for engineer Adrian Westaway, the best inventions need something more - a little bit of magic…

When he was 11 years old, Adrian Westaway wrote a letter to the famous magician, Paul Daniels, wanting to learn how to make his teachers disappear. The reply he received sparked a life-long love of magic. Now a design engineer and co-founder of the invention studio Special Projects, Adrian makes sure that all of the products he develops come with a little bit of magic.
