I always get inspired when I see him perform or read one of his book (Shattering Illusions). He has my utmost respect as a modern magician!

Thank you very much for having him as The Magician of the Week. I have finished reading his book "Shattering Illusions" and it has really opened my eyes and widened my view of magic. One can only hope to become as he is.
