Danny Crauwels was born in Wilrijk and currently lives in Turnhout, Belgium. He is a retired chief constable, assistant to the senior crown prosecutor and professor at University of Antwerp. He studied criminology at Gent and Leuven.
Danny performs as a close-up magician where he creeps into the skin of Commissaire Maigret, the famous detective in the books of Georges Simenon. He is known for his act where he solves the murder of a Dutch police officer in the red light district of Paris.
His most significant contribution to magic is his work on memorized stacks: Stack and System Maigret, which is based on scientific insights on our brain and how and what we remember easily.
