Jaymes’ fascination with the mysteries of the human mind and the patterns that exist in our subconscious has granted him a transcendent understanding of human psychology. Among other accomplishments Jaymes has been able to use hypnotism and suggestion to induce volunteers to forget their own name, he has inserted a needle into a volunteer’s arm without the experience of pain. By producing a rapport between individuals Jaymes has been able to allow complete strangers to seemingly read each other’s minds. Jaymes has been able to exploit universal subconscious patterns to predict the behaviour of both crowds of bystanders as well as that of his audiences. Jaymes has also trained his memory so that it is more powerful and reliable than an eidetic memory.
Jaymes launched the cross-Canada tour of his critically acclaimed stage show PARADOX in 2013. After a premiere which sold out in three days Jaymes has been astounding sold out crowds ever since. While developing and performing PARADOX Jaymes wrote and starred in his television series Mind Games and has quickly vaulted into the Canadian entertainment scene. Jaymes continues to tour with PARADOX and has written and produced the intimate “Art of Mindreading” both of which have amazed audiences across Canada. More recently Jaymes had the rare opportunity to share his interest in the paranormal with a small group of fans as he conducted an authentic Victorian seance with Escape Manor. The Hintonburg Seance was produced in association with Escape Manor and went on to become the fastest selling event in Escape Manor History.
Despite all appearances to the contrary, Jaymes will be the first to admit that he has no psychic powers or ‘gifts’. His mastery of the human mind has been hard won through decades of intense observation, study and practice. Jaymes’ extensive interest in the unexplained has also lead him to conduct in-depth research into accounts of paranormal activities. While he remains open-minded Jaymes has yet to find an experience that cannot be explained by the intricacies of our inmost minds. In his spare time Jaymes enjoys playing guitar and writing songs. His biggest musical influences are Kurt Cobain, and Stevie Ray Vaughan and he enjoys a wide variety of musical genres. In addition to his powerful mental abilities Jaymes keeps his body in top shape, he works out six days a week and loves (winning) a good game of tennis.
