...for those who care about such matters...
I have invested the last 25 years of my life helping moms and dads all over Southern California provide the BEST birthday experience for their kiddos. I have performed thousands of shows around the county for a over a million people (not all at once!).
I make my full-time living as a magician/balloon artist.
I began my full-time career in the late '80s at the tender age of 18. I began working as a "house magician" at the Magic Island in Newport Beach, Ca. I was fortunate enough to associate with some of the biggest names in magic at the time. A couple of them became life-long friends/mentors and one actually showed me how to make a living doing magic. (He opened up his books for me and taught me marketing, showmanship, etc.
When not performing at birthday parties, I also entertain/educate at schools and churches with my Edutainment Magic Shows (public schools/libraries/parks), or my Gospel Illusion shows (Christian Schools and Churches - I am also an ordained minister in the Pillar of Fire Church and am on the pastoral staff at Pillar of Fire Church, Los Angeles).
Another service I can now offer is a two hour variety comedy/magic/balloon/ventriloquism show for FUNdraising opportunities. (But that web-site ins't built yet).
About 6 years ago, I started practicing the art of "extreme" balloon sculpting. Now I am one of the top balloon artists in Southern California and also associate with some of the greatest balloon artists around the world!
Finally, I've been EXTREMELY HAPPILY married for over 23 years. My bride, Denise and I have 2 kiddo girls, 1 in college in San Diego and 1 still with us at home in home in high school.
As a family man, I know what makes families laugh!
Hire me and I promise you and your kiddo will have a great time at his/her birthday party!
