Introduction: I purchased my first sleight-of-hand book at age twelve. One year later, a hometown seafood restaurant hired me as a close-up magician to misdirect patrons from their wait. I even combined sleight-of-hand with an essay on Deception to qualify for the 2003 state speech tournament. Throughout college and medical school, my show gradually turned into an amalgamation of mentalism (psychological magic) and visual illusions. For two decades, I have studied devious methods to baffle the technologically-savvy modern adult audience.

Dan arrived a little early and we were late. He was very patient while our guests finished eating and we started the show a little later. While 1 or 2 tricks were a little amateurish I would say, there were a few we were very impressed with. We all had a good time and I recommend him to other people looking for a magician.

We hired Dan to do a show for my mom’s 70th Birthday surprise party. Dan was amazing. He was combined his magic and humor for a fantastic and entertaining performance. We were wowed and so were our guests. I highly recommend Dan if you want your party to be Over the Top.

FAQs

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

    My quoted price is transparent. There is no additional "convenience," "processing," or "travel" fee.

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

    There are a number of technical considerations to make sure every guest can see and hear the show. I also want to understand the general atmosphere of the event so that the performance is appropriate.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Clients are heterogeneous: Silicon Valley startups, party planners, universities, small families, large corporations, etc.
