Introduction: The interactive magic I perform appeals to ALL AGES, young & old. It is also customized to fit your needs, work with the venue layout, and fit in with whatever other goings on there might be. I try to interact on a personal basis with the audience members as much as possible. Quite often the magic can happen in their own hands! They are treated with respect and intelligence no matter what age be it young or old. Most of my magic is visual enough to overcome any language barriers. My goal is to create a sense of wonder in enjoying the art of magic, not try to confuse or belittle the spectators. Quite often the magic I perform where ever I go makes people smile, young or old. I've often been told I've made their day a little bit special.

What a great magician Todd is. He was very engaging and entertaining with the audience. I have no doubt I booked the best magician in booking Todd for my daughter's second birthday party. If you want to hire someone who will amaze everyone and interact with the guests after his main show, look no further. Also, ask him about his shadowbox art. It is incredible!

Todd was great, everyone had a great time watching him do his magic. We had guests from 4years of age to 60 years of age and everyone really enjoyed it. Besides his good work he was also very professional in every way. My son was scare to have a magician at first but now he is asking me to call him again for his next birthday 🎂! I am happy to have meet Todd!

Todd was literally incredible. He totally captivated the audience. He’s not only a magician but an excellent showman as well who engaged the guests and kept them captivated. He went above and beyond and showed that he really loves what he does. I would highly recommend him, such a classy guy. Thank you so much for being the highlight of Tamara’s evening and exceeding expectations. You will definitely be hired by us again. Thank you so much!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fee varies depending on what type of magic they are requesting (strolling close-up or a stand-up stage show), how far I might be traveling, how long they want my services for, how many people I need to entertain, etc. I try to work with most budgets and customize my show to fit their needs, venue layout, and schedule..

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once a client responds to my quote via messaging or phone call, they find out I am a real professional person. We discuss more about their event and the venue to determine what would work best and if I can fulfill their need. At that point they might make their decision to hire me or wait a few days after they review any other bids they receive. Once they click the Mark As Hired button, I request the specific address, email, and phone number and discuss any other relevant info such as how payment is made. Most clients pay by cash as the time of the event. I will take a check if I know to expect that in advance. I will also take Paypal if paid in advance. If the client requests an invoice for documentation, I will send one via Paypal. Quite often no deposit is necessary unless the client prefers to do so or if for an event several months in advance. A day or so before their event, I check with the client should there be any relevant changes I should be aware of. At the event I do my professional best to make sure all have enjoyed what I've performed. Upon leaving I usually request the client to post a review here on Thumbtack and then follow up with them a few days later.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been involved with magic most of my life as an amateur, but started seriously studying the performance of it around 1986. By 1988 I joined the Academy of Magical Arts (aka Magic Castle) and joined the International Brotherhood of Magician (aka IBM) along with a few other local magic organizations. Besides learning and in turn teaching fellow club members, I also served in running several clubs as President an on their boards for numerous years. I'm a Past President of both IBM Ring 313 and the Orange County Magic Club. I became a professional magician around 2012 while reinventing myself as a result of the economy and end of my long career as a computer systems analyst. Since 2014, I have been teaching a weekly magic class at the Cerritos Senior Center. Since the pandemic lockdown, that has continued via weekly Zoom sessions.
