Since 1974 Michael has been involved with magic in some fashion or form. Performing in all types of venues and locations...far to numerous to list here... he has brought his unique style of magic to the forefront of his art. Hailing from the midwest in the village of Wintersville, Ohio, Michael attended Ohio State University and then relocated to the eastern seaboard in 1983.

He first became interested in magic in 1974 while watching the Bill Bixby show "The Magician". Michael obtained his first magic books, "Scarne on Card Tricks" and "The Amatuer Magicians Handbook" by Henry Hay...a classic in magic literature and a book Michael still references today.

Not satisfied with "doing tricks" Michael constantly strives to be the consummate performer. He travels regularly to New York, Philadelphia and Las Vegas for lectures, conventions and he sessions with other magicians.

Here is a synopsis of Michael's shows:

1. Stand Up / Platform Magic: Stand up magic is a show that is designed to be seen by a lot of people at one time. Michael is usually up on a stage and can perform for guests of 25 to 300 and sometimes more. The show is usually 45 minutes in length and includes magic (of course!), humor and lots of audience participation. Michael provides his own sound system and can customize the show to fit your venue. His core show The Questions of Magic can be performed in almost any kind of venue for an audience of up to 300 people ! Call now and book an evening of legerdemain !

2. Strolling / Walkaround: Strolling magic is a form of entertainment where Michael will move about your patrons at your event and perform close up magic right in front of them. It’s a great way to induce a relaxed atmosphere and a perfect icebreaker. In other words, your guests will receive a personalized form of entertainment and will be left with mystery, laughter and wonder! Strolling magic is perfect for corporate events, holiday parties, bar mitzvahs, grand openings and cocktail hours. This can be combined with Fixed Station Magic also !

3. Fixed Station: Fixed Station magic is an exciting new genre for magic. It involves having Michael located in one location at your venue and then letting your clients come to him. Michael will have a professional table available and will set up in a location chosen by you so that your clients will be able to visit Michael when they chose. Michael can customize his magic to fit this venue and the action can be non stop and exciting. Many clients now chose this type of show for Private Parties as well as Corporate Entertainment. Fixed Station Magic can be combined with Strolling/Walkaround Magic too !

4. Trade Shows/Corporate: Trade Show/Corporate magic is a venue where Michael will perform in front of your booth at a trade show and attract a crowd. For years companies have found that professional magicians can help improve their contacts and sales at trade shows. Michael can customize his magic to make sure he “sells” the point across to potential customers. Trust Michael to be a dynamic representative of your company while providing a professional setting for your trade show and corporate venue.

5. Assembly Shows: Magic assembly shows are designed with education in mind. Michael will perform a 45 minute educational magic show for schools and other educational institutes with the sole purpose of teaching children and educational principle using magic.

6. Birthday Party: This is the classic “Birthday Party” show where Michael will come to your home and perform a 45 minute magic show for children ages 5 to 105!
