  • Do you do open-air acts?

    Yes, in most cases.

  • How long is the act?

    The close-up set engages each group for 5-15 minutes as an ice breaker, while the stage material has 25 and 45 variations.

  • What type of magic do you perform

    I am available for both walk around and close-up magic, for drinks receptions and ice breaker events, in addition to stage/platform work for larger events. Expect things with cards, coins, and little red boxes.

  • Will your magic suit my event?

    I'm sure it will. I can tailor my magic to include a corporate or sponsorship message, so let's talk and see what we can come up with!

  • How many people will you perform for?

    Close-up works for 2-5 people at a time, but I've done stage work for 200-500 people.
