Hello, and welcome.

My name is Marco, and I am a magician - and no, not the kind that will make you disappear on a stage. 

I am currently living in Glastonbury, Somerset - the mythical Isle of Avalon. I specialise in the Western Esoteric Tradition at large, with a particular interest in Thelema and Crowleyana.

From 2014 to 2018 I worked as Online Shop Manager of Treadwell’s Books, a hub of international expertise on Western esotericism, and in August 2017 I moved on to managing the newly formed Special Projects department, focusing on events and media outreach. 

Prior to that, I lived a life as a music professional with an international career spanning over 15 years, gaining credence as a countercultural figure in the alternative underground scene. I am a founding member of electro-industrial band XP8, and have been playing and producing  with Faderhead since 2008. More recently, I wrote and produced an EP under the name of Pylon PeopleI appeared on stage with many other industrial bands such as Unter Null, Grendel, Dope Stars Inc., and VNV Nation. As DJ Azrael, my ministrations included Resistanz Festival, Club AntiChrist, and Slimelight (UK), Death Guild (San Francisco, CA), Summer Darkness (Utrecht, NL), and Zoe Club, Decadence, and Ritual (Italy), and countless others.

A Thelemite and Freemason, I have been a member of the international esoteric community for over two decades, receiving initiation into the A∴A∴, Choronzon Club, and Ordo Templi Orientis: I am currently the driving force behind Ecclesia Gnostica Universalis in Anglia, a thelemic and gnostic church not tied to any particular Order or organisation. Italian science-fiction author (and very good friend) Francesco Dimitri pays tribute to my underground persona through his signature character Dagon in La Ragazza dei miei Sogni. A film adaptation was released in 2017 (trailer here and now available for streaming on Amazon Video). I was responsible for the translation of numerous key esoteric texts from English to Italian, such as Michael Bertiaux’s Lucky Hoodoo and Cosmic Meditation, and Kenneth Grant’s Against the Light.

My main focus nowadays is to organise and run a series of workshops online (and once it's possible again, also in person), where I teach the basis of Thelema, Rosicrucianism, and Esoteric Freemasonry to a wider public outside the bonds of oaths and secrets. 

From this endeavour came the Patreon community - as of today, over 100 strong - and my most ambitious project yet - AvalonCon.


A current question for those attending the workshops was, "what happens next?" 
And often I would get asked if I were to provide online content, lessons, and workshops for those who could not attend the classes in London. 

So here we are on Patreon, offering guidance to those who just want to dip their toes into the world of magick, sigil, tarot and the wonderful world of the Western Esoteric Tradition, as well as those who are fully engaged and want to see how deep the rabbit hole goes (hint: it goes deeper than you imagine).

113 of 418 patrons
  • Reaching this goal will allow me to fully focus on all aspects of esoteric teachings: so you will be able to get more posts, more videos and better production, and it will also help me to finally finish my first book, Thelema After Tears.
