I’m particularly jazzed up these days because I’m working on a new piece of magic, one that I hope will become incredible corporate entertainment. But this post is not about me creating a magic routine, it’s about collaboration. I debuted this routine last month at Foundation Cabaret, a one-of-a-kind show at the world-famous House of Blues in Chicago. The crowd was so much fun and the routine went well. But, I felt like the its
Some parts of my job come very easily to me. I don’t have stage fright (luckily), I’m able to create customized magic for clients and I adapt well to problems on stage. But, like anybody else, there are skills that I am working to improve. This includes remembering names. I can’t tell you how much it matters, because audiences notice. I’ve had shows where I kept calling the volunteer the wrong name, and it hurts
As a professional magician and corporate entertainer, I strive to provide my clients with a stress-free experience, from our initial conversions to the performance itself and everything in between. Special event planners worry enough about caterers, bands, hotel managers and more. My magic show should be an enjoyable experience, free of any stress, and I’ve spent hours ensuring that my audiences are ecstatic about my work. Which brings me to the key ingredient to any
I am 13 years old and standing backstage at Caruso Middle School. It’s the opening night of the student talent show, and I prepared a special levitation illusion to perform with my friend Greg. He is a small-little-Jewish-boy with curly black hair and definitely weighs less than 100 pounds. Greg is the perfect assistant for the levitation illusion.

I recently took a risk. I talked about religion. In my show. This all happened while performing at FringePVD, the Providence Fringe Festival, in July. I had never performed in Providence nor a fringe festival, but I heard that all sorts of acts and flavors appear at fringe events. So, I thought it was a perfect opportunity to jump out of my comfort zone and try something new. Let’s back up and provide some context…
I’m performing a brand new show July 25 and 29 at FringePVD, the Providence Fringe Festival. Or at least as much of a new show as I can. I told myself months ago that I wanted to to create an all new show for FringePVD. And a lot of the show will be new, while some of it will be material that I’ve performed countless times. Some artists have a quick creative process, but not
Most of my shows are 45 minutes long. This gives me 45 minutes to shape my audience members’ worlds and provide moments of amazement, mystery and inspiration. And if I do my job right, they’ll leave thinking differently than when they arrived. They’ll have questioned their realities, or perhaps simply have had a fun time for 45 minutes. I bring this all up now because I recently performed at a private party in Des Moines, Iowa, and my client
As a performer and entrepreneur, every day looks very different from the next. I spend my hours booking shows, engaging in arts and crafts, performing, running the business… and the list goes on. So here’s a sneak peak of my day-to-day life; I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I do living it! Don’t forget to subscribe on YouTube!
