was born (April Fool's Day) and raised in South Boston Va. until
I joined the U.S. AIR FORCE in 1978. My first Tour of duty was
at Osan Air base, Korea. While in Korea, I was able to
participate in the filming of a movie called INCHON by One-way
Production's! Stars in the movie were Sir Laurence Olivier,
David Jansen, Ben Gazzara, Jacqueline Bisset, Richard Roundtree
and yours truely.
I got the bug for performing at this time, I just didn't know
it yet. I left Korea and went to California
where I worked as a volunteer for abused children for a number
of months. This is when I found out that I had a way with
kids, they responded to me! One day I decided to use a magic
trick as a way to approach a little girl who had suffered greatly
at the hands of an abusive parent. She was scared to death of
all adults but she liked magic and she took a liking to me because
of the magic.
From that point on I used magic every chance I could to help
the kids. Soon a lady asked me if I could do her
son's birthday party and the next thing I knew I was performing
at a couple birthday parties a month. After a while I was making
more money working part-time as a magician than I did at my
regular job. It took a bit, but finally I saw the light and
became a full-time magician. That was 10 years ago and now I
perform at about 350 events (CORPORATE EVENTS, PRIVATE PARTIES,
KID'S EVENTS, ADULT CELEBRATIONS, SCHOOLS, RESTAURANTS,
MOVIES, COMMERCIALS, TRADE SHOWS, CONVENTIONS, ETC.) per year
in the San Francisco Bay Area.
