The magic I do there is smaller, but I can do also do a stage show for your event. Here is the address. 933 W Rand Rd, Arlington Heights, IL 60004 Here are some helpful tips when booking a magician. 1. Did you check out their website 2. Reviews: Reading reviews will give you a good idea on the magicians performance and service to you. 3. Response time: A lot of people will hire the first magician that contacts them. This may feed the instant gratification of someone that wants a "NOW" response but just because someone is quick, doesn't mean that you will get quality. We suggest that you get 3 referrals before hiring. Some magicians may not get back to you quickly because they are doing a show and so you might be loosing out by passing up a very qualified magician. 4. Cheap: Cheap isn't always the best. Some people have the mentality of just hiring any magician because the kids won't be able to tell the difference. WRONG! you couldn't be more wrong. Just look at kids when they play video games or watch youtube videos. Kids are smart. They know what is good. 5: youtube videos: Watching youtube videos will give you a good indication of the quality of magic you will be getting. It will also give you an idea of his/her personality and how they interact and treat the audience. 6. Appearance: Is the magician clean, what type of clothes does he wear? does he dress for success or show up in ripped jeans? 7. Background Check: did you do research on the magician? remember. You will be inviting a stranger into your home or at your venue. You at least want to check the person out and get an idea of who you're getting. These are just a few tips from my 30 years experience in magic. When it comes to magic. I not only create MAGIC! I CREATE MEMORIES. Have a MAGICAL DAY! Mark Presley I love Magic because I love seeing the smiles on people's faces when I do something amazing. I love taking people who may not be having such a good day and helping them forget whatever challenges may be going on in their life. The world needs more magic.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees are based on what type of show I'm doing for you, date, time how far I have to travel. There is a lot of factors that go into my pricing. I can do magic for just about any event such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, holiday parties, corporate events, trade shows, public speaking using magic and more..... Some shows might involve more equipment which will take longer to set up where a basic show takes very little time to set up, like 10 to 15 minutes where a larger show may take up to 45 minutes to an hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process for working with new customers is to ask lots of questions so that I can determine which show best suits their needs for their event. My services span to a wide variety of magic.From close-up magic, walk magic, comedy or stage my stage show. What kind of budget a customer has will also determine which show is best for them within their budget.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In 2015, I received a scholarship to one of the most prestigious magic schools in the world. The McBride Magic & Mystery School. They have been teaching together since 1987. Operated by Las Vegas magic headliner Jeff McBride and his teacher, Eugene Burger. While in Vegas, I not only got to work with McBride and Burger, but also met magic legend David Copperfield, and performed his favorite trick the aces at the Platinum Casino on the seventeenth floor with the Strip as a back drop. Former students have won awards at every major convention in the US, and even at the international championship known as F.I.S.M. In 2016, I won fist place stage and 1st place close-up at the Magicpalooza magic competition in Orlando Florida. I was the first magician ever to win two magic competitions for Magicpalooza. I'm a professional magician with over thirty years experience. Performing everything form birthday parties to elaborate illusion shows I have wowed audiences of all ages. The one thing that I learned most about being a student of The McBride Magic & Mystery School was to connect with your audience.
