THE CLIFFSNOTES TO MY BACKGROUND
Here's what my Mom brags about: I'm one of the youngest people ever admitted as a member of the Magic Castle. One of the highest rated magicians on the Yelp in the entire USA (please check out the reviews!). I'm a Forbes 30under30 and Business Insider 30 under 30. I've performed in London, Poland, Spain, France, and Ecuador and I'm a Magic Castle Junior Achievement award winner too; an award for excellence in performance amongst up and coming magicians in the world. Some of my favorite clients include Google, Disney, Facebook, U.S. State Dept., Boeing, The Met Museum, CBS Studios, Nestle, Ford, Louis Vuitton, and Bravo's Real Housewives too.
WHAT SETS ME APART?
No top hat. No sparkly vest. Just mind-blowing magic and mentalism with a comedic twist. I'm happy explain some of the unique things I do that others don't - just contact me for more details! All in all, my goal is honestly to do more than just magic, but make your party one to remember for years to come.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

"COME ON. My head hurts." -Anne Hathaway, Academy Award Winning Actress
"Thank you, Mike. You made this party." -Kelly Slater, Athlete
"I'm not sure what else to say besides that you are simply incredible." -Don Cheadle, Actor
"Mike is not only an amazing magician- he is warm, charming and charismatic. The party went from memorable to unforgettable due to Mike's presence! He is terrific!"
-Jan & Don Elliott, Parents of the bridge, Menlo Park, CA
"His magic was great for small groups too and was infinitely creative. He did an iPhone trick was amazing and a nice update on the typical card tricks you run into."
-Jake Meyer, Office Manager, LA, CA
"I feel like usually you get just a funny guy, or just a good magician- but he's an incredible mix of the two. So personable, so kind, and really helped make my event a serious hit. Will hire him again."
-Josh Faryab, Party Planner, NYC
"To get a magician with great tricks (sorry "effects") I feel like you're destined to have to put up with a power-nerd, complete cheese ball, or total creeper. Not this guy. Mike probably has a future in stand up comedy if he decides to quit magic."
-Brendan Harper, Booker, NYC
