Jerry Cestkowski has been fascinated with spinning objects since he was too young to know better. Taking up card flourishes at fourteen, he has been honing his craft for thirty years. Now an inveterate fanatic, he is eminently qualified to write an encyclopedia of fancy stunts with cards. He has developed an unparalleled knowledge of the subject both through exhaustive research and ceaseless hands-on experience. Jerry has made it his mission to master, invent and describe as many good flourishes as possible. He considers card flourishes a pure art form, and his goal is to advance the art.
Jerry lives in Colorado with his wife Cynthia and two cats, April and Graham. Besides card manipulation, his other lame hobbies include astronomy, gardening, golf and coin collecting.
