Introduction: Corporate and ballroom events, weddings, cocktail hours, public speaking, meetings, office gatherings or just a house party BBQ. This magic happens face to face. This is more intimate. It's in your hands. This is the best way to meet and entertain all your guest on a personal level. I do not perform with large stage productions with flashy dancers and fireworks. As a public speaker and instructor I understand the importance of keep the attention of a captive audience. I also offer my public speaking skills with a magical blend set to amaze and get the point across in a magical manner. Own a bar or restaurant? Holding an event at a bar or restaurant? This magic happens face to face. Add wonderful memories and moments of wonder to your next event. My goal in life is to make people smile and forget about the world for a while. Instill the whimsy back into people's lives. Magic is not just for children. I know in some cases adults need it more than children. There's a little 'something' in magic for everyone.
