I became hooked on
magic at age 12, when I read my first magic book, Classic

magic, as well as adult magic, and have developed completely
different shows for different age groups and functions. But
no matter where I'm performing, or for whom, my hallmark is

sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Magicians, Ring
