He leaves the audience delighted, ecstatic, and laughing.
Comedy magicians can sometimes be one-trick acts, but Mark's hilarious, irreverent, tongue-in-cheek style of self-deprecating comedy contrasts beautifully with his surprising skill as a sleight-of-hand artist and top juggler. This unique set of performance skills makes him perfect to perform for clients who want to hire a close-up or walk-around magician, hire a comedy illusionist, or hire a magician for a kids' party.
Mark has spent years sharpening his skills as a magician in Santa Barbara. He is one of a few local magicians who is both a familiar and welcome sight at many of the exclusive parties held in the Santa Barbara area.

Companies such as Toyota, Verizon, Fidelity National Title, and Miller have asked Mark to apply his creative form of professional magic to filling their corporate needs. He can serve as a juggler or close-up magician to attract attention at trade shows and entertain guests in hospitality suites. His special skills can liven up any new product release or add an extra zing to holiday, retirement and promotion parties. His adaptability comes in handy when serving as an emcee for corporate training, and he really brings fresh insights to the topic of “Creative Problem Solving” as a keynote speaker.
In March of 2005, Mark received recognition as part of a competitive group of close-up magicians when he was awarded “Strolling Magician of the Year” at the World Famous Hollywood Magic Castle.
