I've been performing magic
since I was ten years old. After college, I taught photography at UMass
Amherst, taught guitar, made guitars, wrote music books and children books,
published short stories, and now I am a full-time magician.
Once I discovered that magic was my real passion, I left my other hobbies
behind and traveled around the world performing magic. In many countries, I
found that an interpreter wasn't unnecessary -- the magic is a universal
language that speaks for itself.
I live in Belchertown, Massachusetts, and am one of two full-time magicians
in Western Mass. The emphasis of my show is on humor as well as mystery. I
choose volunteers from the audience as my assistants. My shows are
appropriate to the age group of the audience. I perform for schools, blue and
gold banquets, company picnics, and private birthday parties. I perform on
the corporate level by doing trade shows, hospitality suites, and client
functions. At trade shows, I demonstrate the client's product using magic.
Presenting it in this way, their client is more likely to remember the
I have been performing at School Shows and Birthday Parties with Rufus for the last ten years. He is a rabbit with
an attitude. He calls it "Rabbit-Tude!". He causes mayhem and
basically takes over the show. In addition to pulling my suspenders, telling
silly jokes, and exaggerating stories about his fishing skills, he likes to
finish by playing music. He has been known to play everything from children's
songs to rock and roll. Lately he's taken to forming Conga Lines, with the
kids following him to the music. All in all, it's a fun, comedy-based magic
show for kids of all ages.
