David Ranalli was born and raised in Chicago. His life in magic started at 13 when he snuck backstage to meet the legendary illusionist David Copperfield.
After deciding he wanted a simpler approach, Ranalli drew inspiration from magicians like David Blaine and would practice his craft everywhere he could. After only 1 year, Ranalli found a regular gig performing in restaurants, doing as many shows as possible to perfect his craft.
His training advanced when he decided to study Speech Communication & Philosophy at Southern Illinois University. Free to explore, David learned everything he could about psychology, marketing, language, non-verbal expression, and the effects of electronic media on the brain. David helped conduct one of the first smart-phone addiction studies, and graduated at the top of his class.
David’s personal time is mostly spent with his family, splitting time between Chicago and Indianapolis. David unplugs from the world by growing a lot of his own food. His “food forest” garden is filled with a rare selection of fruits, nuts, mushrooms, and wild vegetables. He also has a flock of chickens and claims one of them is possessed by evil spirits.
