"Magic that is performed close up right before your very eyes... "

Everyone is mystically entertained by my Close Up / Strolling Magic Performance.
It is a very intimate form of the art and is also quite affordable!

The photo above was taken at a Joliet Fundraiser whereby I borrowed this gentleman's currency and then made it float in mid air!


I usually insert a degree of comedy
into most of my magic!
At Brookfield Zoo's "Holiday Magic">


"She is worried!"

Yes I did "pen-e-trate" this currency but..

I'll magically restore it

to it's original state when I'm finished and then...

maybe mystically transform her $5 bill into a $100 billl!!!

"The Surprise Finalle Of The Show"

The finalle of my Strolling / Walk Around / Close Up Magic Performance always features a special souvenior for the guest or guests of honor. Pictured at the right, the Birthday Girl, at the Rockwell Inn located in Morris, IL, is given a duplicate of the card that she originally selected, only this one is four times larger and is signed "Happy Birthday!" It's her Birthday Card to keep from yours truly.

"Is the hand really quicker than the eye?"

At the left, I borrow an item from a gentleman

and proceed to perform "a miracle" with it.
