How a Teacher Inspired a Love of Magic

My love of magic started way back in 1973! I remember the day like it was yesterday. I was in typing class in school. My teacher showed me a magic trick. I was hooked instantly. Over time, he showed me more and more tricks.

A month or so later, I went to his house for my own live magic show. With his wife acting as his assistant, he performed a spellbinding 40-minute magic show. It was amazing! They caused live animals to appear from thin air – doves, a white rabbit – I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Over the next two years, my teacher continued to “mentor” me in magic. I also picked up a lot of books on magic from my local libraries. As I continued to imp[rove my skills, I eventually started performing publicly at children’s birthdays, school assemblies, childcare centers, and more.

Adding Messages to the Magic

I grew up dealing with a very big challenge – Tourette Syndrome. To say it was a rough way to go through childhood is an understatement! But I preserved. I refused to give up. I had to work harder than anyone else I knew to achieve my goals. So, it made sense to me to start adding motivational messages to my shows.

I have traveled the country for the last 30+ years delivering programs with educational or motivational content. I’ve performed these programs for audiences of all ages. I love delivering messages of hope to elementary school-age students.

And I’ve delivered motivational programs to adult groups and even NASA! To me, providing powerful messages of empowerment gives my performing meaning. But I still love doing a show just to give my audiences a good time, too!

When I’m Not Performing…

Even when I’m not performing magic, I still learn about it. I love studying the greats that came before me. To me, mastering a chosen field never stops. There’s never a time when you can sit back and say, “Okay. I’ve learned all there is to learn about this.”

And my other major hobby is singing! I love to sing and even do it from time to time in my shows.
