Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Be particular.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Not all "performers" are professional. You have the right to ask how many shows they have performed, if they are well groomed and how long the show is. If these issue are discussed openly the performer should not object. After all, it is just business and it goes a long way in ensuring your event is a magical one.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. 1. "How long is your show?"
2. "Are you well groomed?"
3. "Is the show age appropriate?"
4. "How will you dress?"
5. "Is there anything you need to make the show more successful?"
A good performers show should be approx. 30-50 mins depending on the age of the audience and other factors. Always well groomed and dressed appropriately to the venue. The last question is a test for you to put the performer through. A real professional will need nothing from you (other than your cooperation) to perform his craft. So if he/she does "need" something, they are probably not good enough for you.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I have been performing for children and adults for over 20 years. My show is interactive and simple enough for kids to comprehend but magical enough to mystify adults.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I am always entering a party.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. My profession has taken YEARS to Master. I have done over 800 shows to date and I feel like I am just getting started. Hard work and dedication is the key. For every trick/illusion you see there are countless hours behind it to master its intricacies. Being a magician has taken great effort and I love every moment I have taken to be good at it.
