SHIVRAJ: How did you get into cardistry or where did you see it first?
DUY: I got to know about it from my guitar teacher Nguyễn Thượng Hiển. He showed me some cardistry for the first time.
SHIVRAJ: How would you define 'cardistry' in your own words?
DUY: Everything that you can do with a deck of cards except magic.
SHIVRAJ: Who/What inspires you the most and why?
DUY: Dan & Dave inspired me a lot. From the day I started cardistry, I used to learn everything from them. Lately, I'm inspired by Gaolock, he makes everything possible that I thought couldn't be. Also music inspires me a lot for creating isolations.
SHIVRAJ: What is your creative process of making moves?
DUY: I just try to come up with a new concept first that no one has done before and use it to create a move.
