MAGIC SHOWS (GENERAL)
My magic shows are FULL of audience participation which really adds to the excitement as everyone loves to be involved in the magic. Many of the routines are designed to appear as though my volunteers do the conjuring! My show is a blend of fun & humor combined with the wonder of magic. And, there's music to complement the show for a full experience. The content of my show varies with the audience. I can gear the show toward a specific age group / gender or perform magic that's appropriate for all ages!
With children, I am especially animated and present magic that is exciting and contains the element of surprise to fully engage them! My shows include colorful production routines, comedy rope and silk magic, Bubble Magic, my Society of American Magicians Award-Winning "Stratosphere" routine, an impossible card trick featuring Cozmo the magic balloon dog and for those who embrace wonder, a volunteer can conjure up a beautiful confetti "snowstorm.” If you want some pizzaz, another volunteer (maybe your son or daughter) can "float" in mid air in the show's finale!
MAGIC SHOWS FOR OLDER CHILDREN & ADULTS
I can also perform some fun mind blowing Mentalism (predictions) and Escapes, which are more suitable routines for older children and adults... as is my Jigsaw Through Body Illusion that features a brave volunteer from the audience. Again, these are merely examples of what I can include in the show... I really need to know more about the audience to determine what's best. Still, expect a lot of fun and surprises!
MAGIC AND WONDER (Ages 6 & Up) This show is geared to audiences who are looking for something more exciting. It contains comedy, classical magic, escapes, psychic mentalism and small illusions that defy logic like "Liquid Glass" and "The Jigsaw Through Body."
MAGICAL SORCERESS / CRYSTAL GYPSY WITCH (Ages 6 & Up) Perfect for Halloween with Magic Potions & Mystical Ceremonies!
As a Balloonist, my designs range from simple to complex, with the most complicated design requiring no more than 3 minutes to twist as nobody likes to wait!

I was born into a show biz family and began my professional career at age 9 performing in a mother / daughter (& sister) French Cabaret Review. At age 22, I received a scholarship from the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute and moved to NYC to study acting. I "discovered" magic one day when I decided to incorporate it into a performance piece and I've been hooked ever since! As a magician, my original style has earned me the "BEST PERFORMER" Award by my peers from the Society of American Magicians. As a party planner, I have maintained an “A” rating from the Better Business Bureau as I specialize in high quality entertainment. (One of my Carnival Birthday Parties has been featured on Bravo TV's '15 season of “The Housewives of Long Island!”)
