About Haydini: Rare Magic, Well Done!

hired 3 times on Thumbtack

Hayden Childress is considered one of the top magicians in the United Federal blah blip yadayada. As you can guess, I am the person who writes, designs, and manages my website and all of my marketing materials, so I could pretty much write anything I wanted about myself. Let's just cut to the chase.

My name is Hayden Childress, but I have been performing under the stage name Haydini ever since I started performing professionally. I began working in restaurants at age 15 (I'd already been doing magic for 5 years), and have had the honor of performing for a number of corporate audiences, schools, universities, and have even developed a large enough fan base to host my own shows in the Charlotte area.

I perform magic because I love to make the impossible become possible. I find it incredible how the human brain works, and how easily deceived it is through simple psychological principles (and a trap door on the stage). Above all else, I love to entertain. Not only do I perform magic, but I also act and perform stand-up comedy. With this in mind, I have made a show that is not only going to fool your pants off (hopefully not literally), but will make you laugh, cry, and make you want to watch more! If there is anything I hate, it is a boring show - I am anything but boring.

Today I am studying business at the University of South Carolina, and I am minoring in Media Arts. I plan to use my skills in business in coordination with my Chinese speaking to perform magic in China in the future. When I was 17 I asked David Copperfield if he thought it would be wise to go to college, rather than keep pursuing my career in magic. His response? "If you are good enough, then why can't you do both?" Today I am a full time, self-employed entertainer, and a full-time college student. I have not regretted a single day.

I hope you've enjoyed hearing about me and my magic! I am a rebel - just check out my bio photo up there! I also just wrote all of this in 1st person - take THAT 7th grade English class!

    I thought Haydini was great. We had an event that was comprised of adults aging from 30- 86 and one child and he was able to entertain the entire crowd. It was much needed change from our typical events and was a breath of fresh air to our annual banquet. I received numerous compliments over the next few days. Definitely recommend

    I had a terrific night performing for everyone at the banquet. They were a really fun crowd, respectful, and overall a great audience to perform for.

    Thanks for having me!

    We had Hayden come to our daughters graduation party. I, personally, did not get to see any of his magic (the unfortunate being of hostess) but EVERYONE that did had rave reviews!!! Hayden was very professional and entertaining and affordable! You won't be disappointed!!

    Hayden was none less than SPECTACULAR !
    The illusions he performed were amazing, but his interaction with the crowd really made the show. Our audience were teenagers and he was never frazzled by them. Also, it started raining halfway through the show and he moved his act indoors and never missed a beat. He is a true professional. Every one at the party was amazed!
    Highly recommended to enhance any occasion!!

Question and answer

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

A. I study in the Darla Moore School of Business and I also study media arts. This allows me to run operations of my magic more efficiently, and it teaches me how to use media and art to my advantage as a self employed entertainer.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. Nowadays its pretty simple!

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. Studied a lot of magic, realized I was good, and I needed some money in high school. Eventually I got even better, and here I am today!

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Most of the audiences I perform for are aged 10-50 with crowds of 50-500. My show is great for all age groups, but is a guaranteed hit for the high school and college audiences.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. Nearly sold out a theater in uptown Charlotte! #yeahhh!

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. There is a strong correlation between a sucky act and unprofessionalism. You don't have to hire me, but please don't book a creep just because he was $50.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. It is a very challenging job. It requires more than just learning how to do "tricks". A magician has to be able to connect with the audience and keep them entertained.
