"Fernando is a beautiful devil and a wickedly good entertainer, combining the best of the Spanish School of Magic and his shining devious mentalism."
"Fernando is a place with many corners and nooks. Intelligent and literate as his mentalism. Interesting and playful as his ideas. And powerful and fresh as his life. All of this can be felt in each of his acts."
"Fernando perfectly represents the high class and brilliant thinking of the Spanish School of Magic. His knowledge, skills and approach to mentalism and magic astound me every time I see him. If you don't know him yet, get to know him, or you will miss a great master of our time. BTW, he is a super nice guy!"
