Thank you so much for entertaining our guest! The FedEx Office event would not have been a success without you. We all especially loved the bunny trick.

Jerry and Paula,
I wanted to thank you both for the wonderful job you did at our Copesan National Conference in Orlando, FL Dessert Banquet. You both were a huge hit and people had a great time at the event as a direct result of both of your awe inspiring magic and extremely creative drawings. I really loved how you both were able to work in our conference theme into your drawings and magic act. I would recommend you to any group doing any event in Orlando because you made our event a complete success. Thank you both again.

Where it all started : As a boy my father would take me to Colon, Michigan" The Magic Capital of the World. "Where we would attend the Abbott's Magic get together. The two of us would spend the days sharing the love and art of illusion. My father bought me my first magic trick "The Coin Case" it's a vanishing and reappearing coin. I share my fathers enthusiasm for the history and entertainment of magic. From that one trick I went on to learn and incorporate magic into a talent to perform for others. I have learned many fascinating magic effects and stage illusions, but I still hold a special place in my heart for the coin case....for it reminds me of my father and the good times we shared and spent at the town name Colon Michigan.
