OPINION: MY FIRST JOB - Magic memories from Brett Horton, marketing manager of the Alban/Concord group

Brett Horton likes to play with fire. Literally. He spent his college days learning to juggle, which paid off when he landed a summer job in Malta.

Brett Horton likes to play with fire. Literally. He spent his

college days learning to juggle, which paid off when he landed a summer

job in Malta.



’I did all sorts of juggling,’ he says, listing flaming clubs alongside

the obscure devil stick and the sinister diabolo as the tools of his

trade.



On a less macho note, he adds: ’I also did balloon twisting and face

painting.’



Known as ’magic man,’ he drank free in every bar and was admired by the

local womenfolk. But his nickname changed to ’ghost man’ when one local,

judging him a fire hazard, seized an extinguisher and covered him in

foam.
