A cruise ship worker named Doug Anderson when I was 13 years old absolutely fried me when he had me onstage and did the sponge balls to me. That is what led me into magic, and got me to where I am now. :-D

I do restraunts, parties, & street magic. I also did a Xmas party last year. I showed some magic to my fiance's brother in law & the next thing I knew I was doing magic as his company's X-mas party. According to the guy that hired me I was 5 times better than the magican that they had in '01. My best tricks were "Paperclipped", Scotch & Soda & Deep Astonishment. Oh, & I got paid eight hundred & fifty dollars for 2 hours of work. (it was a big company, I guess it was nothing to them. In '01 they paid nine hundred bucks for the other guy, but I said that I didn't need that much.)

A magician/magic vendor when I was young did a sponge ball trick on me in a mall. I was floored and begged my mom to buy the effect for me. That pretty much started it all. I was always intrigued by magicians on TV though. Always recorded magic specials anytime I could. Lance Burton was a great influence, and though I don't like to admit it now, David Copperfield also was an influence, to a lesser extent.

I would also have to say WGM. Today I look back and see how corny it is, but that's what sparked my interest. But my friends and family definitely feuled the fire by buying me all sorts of little plastic self-workers and kits.
