    Eric was wonderful at our boys birthday party! He knew how to manage the large group of 5 year olds, he held their attention the whole time. His tricks were spot on, keeping even the adults captivated. He had the entire room (50 people) laughing, engaged, and amused. I highly recommend him and would love to work with him again.

    Eric did an amazing job at our 6 and 3 year old's joint party. His magic show and the tricks he did we're perfect for the age groups we had and he kept everyone's attention, even the adults! He kept all the kids entertained, made sure they all were a part of the show, and really put on an outstanding show. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a great, friendly, and entertaining magician.

    About this pro

    My work stands out for a couple of reasons. Unlike a lot of other magicians, I don't use big, flashy props. I entertain using ordinary looking objects and my 20+ years of sleight of hand practice. I feel like this enhances the experience because the audience can understand and relate to what is happening on stage. Also, my show has a very small footprint (usually I only need room for a small table and myself) so I can perform almost anywhere! My favorite thing about my job is being able to show people something they've never seen before. Or, even better, being able to show them something that they see everyday in a whole new way. I get to demonstrate that given the right point of view, there's wonder all around us.

      Q & A

      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I've been studying magic ever since I was 12 years old. I also have a degree in psychology which comes in handy with magic.
      • What types of customers have you worked with?
        I've performed for a wide variety of audiences from comedy clubs to family gatherings. I have shows appropriate for sophisticated adult audiences, and for audiences with a mix of kids and adults.
      • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
        Communication is very important. Give the performer as many details as you can about the event and who the audience will be. Also check reviews from past clients. Those are probably the best way to tell if a performer is right for you.
