What services does your company provide?: I make the impossible seem possible through magic, for any lifetime event that is important to you.

Short company description: I help in making your event fun, entertaining and memorable. From corporate events to sharing the gospel, I take a magic trick and turn it into meaningful entertainment.

What makes your company unique?: Me. There are many magicians and many have the same props, but no one is going to have my style, humor and delivery. I create my own routines for every trick that I perform.

How do you define success?: I might see success different then most. It is not a matter of how many gigs I get or how many magic tricks I sell. For me, aligning myself with God and knowing that I’m doing His Will to reach people is success.

What is a tip for success that you would provide someone in your same industry?: To be a magician takes more then learning a trick, copying them and running out to show someone. Take the time to make it your own, practice it until you know it and then make it about your audience experience when performing.

What is your favorite type of event to be involved with and why?: I love sharing God’s Word and the thought of someone that might not of been interested in church is not watching because they like to be entertained, yet they are receiving the gospel at the same time.

How have you and your company handled the COVID-19 situation?: All my gigs were canceled from March 2020 until just this March. I decided to perform for the first time for a small household. I have taken the time in creating new routines and a new gospel message that I’m hoping to have ready in the next could of months.
