You are looking for entertainment and your choice can easily be the difference between a mediocre event or an event, your event, that is fantastic and memorable. Do you want an absolutely spectacular event that will leave you and your guests with fond memories? Yes, then kindly keep reading.
Here is the information that will help you quickly cut through the many choices that are available on the internet. As you know, the internet brings you many possibilities and that is good, but too many choices is just not fun. I know the feeling and we both know that it would be nice if it was just simple and easy.
Here is what you want:
1. You want a professional.
I arrive on time (actually, ahead of schedule). My attire is clean and sharp. My demeanor is well spoken, easy going and polite.
2. You want experience.
Thirty years of professional experience and literally thousands of shows in a wide variety of performing venues and situations. I have "flight time" and you want someone who has and can handle any situation with a smile and the skill set to keep it entertaining and professional. My training is extensive and I have been under the tutelage of some of the greatest mentors in the fields of Magic & Mind Reading, including experts in directing and producing, but what is important again is my extensive real life performance experience.

3. You want your guests to be amazed and you want to hear the compliments.
That is what I do. What separates me from everyone else are these things:
Likability, the Magic can be fantastic, but the audience has to like the performer and they have to relate to the performer and the material. I accomplish this through my ability to combine professionalism and charm along with "Adaptability".
Adaptability, every show has a life of it's own and every audience and performance situation is different. The ability to speak to and relate to people regardless of their background, language, culture, age or myriad other factors plays a key role in being able to amaze an audience. Being able to adjust the style of performance to fit the venue, lighting, visibility and other situational factors is also an area where my expertise will be evident.
Material, the fact is that everybody likes something different and for very different reasons. I present my material in a way that there is something for everyone and in the end:
PEOPLE WANT TO HAVE FUN! This is not about me, this is about YOU AND YOUR OBJECTIVES. I understand this and above all else this is what truly separates me from the other performers. Yes, this is Magic and Mind Reading, but in reality, I am an Entertainer with your goals in mind.
