#2 Theory, Articles & Reviews author

Brian brings over 50 years of experience to the stage. His shows play to all ages and he has made his mark as a highly skilled entertainer. The music, comedy and storytelling in his "Mysteries of Magic" show will leave you talking about it for a very long time. He knows the secret of capturing an audience and leading them through a magical journey.

Through his training materials Brian introduces magicians to the craft, skills and tools needed to work in front of an audience. It makes no difference how expensive your magic is, how great you are with slight-of-hand or manipulations. Your entertainment factor rests entirely on the audience. If they are not entertained you will not be viewed well as a performer.

Brian has presented numerous lectures on performance, working with music and show development to various clubs and organizations. His helpful articles have been published in both clown and magic industry magazines. Endorsements he received echo his goal of meeting magicians where they are and providing training to help take their performance to the next level.

Brian has won first place in group competition (Felix Adler Days, Clinton, IA) He placed second in stage competition (2012) third in competition (2015), second in stage competition (2016) by IBM Ring # 11 (QCMC), and third in stage competition (2017) by IBM Ring # 11 (QCMC)
