- Walk us through a typical day in your shoes.
Each and every day I think of new ways to make people smile. I go into my magic shop and invent new illusions all geared to make my audiences feel a sense of wonder, excitement and enjoyment.
- Have you ever purchased any As Seen on TV items?
It seems I often lose my keys so I bought Magic Finder on TV. This is a device that you hook up your keys to so they never get lost. I ended up losing the magic finder and now I have a huge useless keychain attached to my keys. Luckily it only cost 19.99.
- If you could destroy a grade-school photo of yourself, what year would it be and why?
I love all my grade school photos! Just kidding! If I could destroy one, it would have to be eighth grade. In eighth grade I thought it would be super funny to make a ridiculous face for the camera, and I did just that. The face stuck and was printed in the yearbook. I got a lot of backlash from my family because I made a funny face.
- While grocery shopping, what is your stick-in-the-cart-when-no-one-is-looking item?
I absolutely love coffee. It’s like a drug to me. If I drink coffee, I end up going a million miles per hour and don’t sleep at all during the night. Needless to say I am not allowed to have any coffee after 5 p.m. Beware of the cappuccino; I end up performing magic 24/7.
- If we were to look through your iPod or iPhone, what is on your hit list or playlist or favorite app?
Lately I have been listening to voice overs. Morgan Freedman and Don LaFontaine are the best. As far as my favorite app, I would have to say YouTube is my favorite social media app and I have been working on my own special magic app.
- Do you ever play “tourist” in Vegas? If so, what is your favorite thing to do?
If I play tourist I love to go to the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and feast my eyes on the amazing displays. They really know how to decorate a garden.
- What do you do to unwind and relax?
When I unwind I love to watch movies and or read a good book. Sundays are always fun to relax with the family and enjoy a beautiful day.
- Does anyone ever mistake you for someone else?
Someone thought I was Pitbull. Then I start showing them magic and they freak out, saying “Pitbull can do magic.” If I start rapping they know I’m not Pitbull.
