- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $260 for the first hour and 50% less for the following hours at the same location and the same date. Most of the time one hour is enough as most magic shows are 45 to 50 minutes long. For performances outside of the greater Austin area I charge for travel ($0.50/mile). The Magic Theme Party is an additional $40 plus $5 per participating child for the take home magic kits and it lastes over two hours including a break between the class and the show and basically takes care of the entire party for you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Send me your preferred date and time and I will let you know if I am available. When and if you have decided to book me and we have settled on a date and time I try to assess the needs of the party organizer. How big of a stage do I have (often just a living room), how big is the audience (I can bring a loudspeaker, free of charge, if needed), what is happening before and after my show, (I can do anything from 30 to 60 minutes of magic depending on the age group and the needs of the organizer), etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been teaching and performing magic for more than 30 years and I am a member of several magic associations like The International Brotherhood of Magicians and The Society of American Magicians. In addition to that I am also a member of the renown American Academy of Magic in Hollywood and one of the owners of “Fantastic Magic Camp” in Austin, Texas.
