Some History

David’s interest in magic started at age 13 after a chance meeting with David Copperfield in his hometown of Chicago. Inspired by what he had seen, David began learning everything he could about the art of illusion, and learning from those willing to teach. Just one year later he was performing professionally, on stage and in restaurants, all throughout the Chicagoland area. He honed his skills through thousands of performances, and continues to push his himself to higher levels with his art.

During college, David was awarded several college scholarships from the Society of American Magicians for his achievements in academics and magic.

His conjuring skills also saved his life once when he was being robbed at knife point in downtown Chicago. The 2 muggers told him to empty his pockets, which is when David pulled out a deck of cards and immediately began wowing them with magic. In the end, the robbers were thanking him and allowed him to walk away with his wallet and in good health.
