Giro began doing magic at the age of ten using the classic box of magic he had asked for Christmas. At the age of seventeen he won first prize in the national competition of magic (Spain) (Primer Premio Nacional de Magia) with a complicated act in manipulation which had been created following the advice of his master, Alfred Camps (expert in magic and Chairman of the Magic Circle CEDAM). This event marked a turning point in Giro’s professional life, and he decided to make magic his living.
