A native of New Jersey, Phillip began studying the art of magic and illusion at the age of 7. By the time he entered high school, he was already in great demand to perform in schools, summer park festivals, banquets and dance clubs. Many years and hundred of performances later, Phillip has developed into a great entertainer. The magic shows helped finance his education at Adelphi University, from which he received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree and a minor degree in Theatre Arts.
For today’s technically savvy and information oriented audiences, Phillip stays ahead of his competition by creating and redesigning his own illusion. Therefore, you will not likely hear the words “I’ve seen that trick before!” in any of his shows. As an illusion designer and construction engineer, Phillip has been able to create special effects and optical illusions for such corporations as Moody’s Investor Services, Ortho Pharmaceutical and Suzuki Automotive Corporation of America. He has received the Best Entertainment Attraction Award - twice from the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
