I've been performing magic for over ten years now. Focusing mainly on close up magic and mentalism. For me the best magic to both perform and watch always takes the form of a kind of theater. A good enough story and setting can contextualize a trick allowing the technique to move beyond deception into a unique experience that you cannot get anywhere else. I believe this is particularity true with my specialization, close up magic. Properly executed close up magic can leave an audience member with their own special personal moment of wonder that I get to help create with them.
At the moment I only have this magic trick recorded for you to see but it is me performing for the wonderful and generous Penn Jillette one of my magic heroes. I hope you enjoy it as while the script is off the cuff and raw it has a lot of what makes up my signiture performing style.
