David Ranalli Meets David Blaine

David Blaine expresses “excitement” as he and Ranalli snap a photo together.

David Ranalli was born and raised in Chicago. He started magic at age 13 after he had snuck backstage to meet the legendary David Copperfield.

Ranalli later drew inspiration from magicians like David Blaine and would practice his craft everywhere he could. 

After just 1 year, David found a regular gig performing in restaurants and parties, 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, speech, non-verbal communication, marketing, and the effects of electronic media on the brain. David helped conduct one of the first smartphone addiction studies and graduated at the top of his class. 

David’s personal time is mostly spent with his friends and family, splitting time between Chicago and Indianapolis. David is also very passionate about “forest gardening” and enjoys growing his own food. He currently lives in a forest he designed and planted, and is working towards building a much larger forest to help fight climate change.
