I could never sleep for the first week I just had the urge to practice.

    i'm 15 and i'm into music and my faith, i got into magic when i bought a stripper deck and some gimmicked coins at a magic shop while in Orlando. I'm like the only magician in at least my high school and i only know of one professional magician in my area, so i guess i love having that unique gift. i've lived in the same small town in Illinois my entire life, Galesburg

    Hobbies Other Than Magic: Playing Guitar and hanging out with friends
    How I started magic: I used to watch criss angel a few years ago and I wanted to know how he did his effects. While looking for that on YouTube I found tons of tutorials for magic, not really realizing it was wrong at the time. Then I discovered Penguin Magic and I took off from there. I always enjoyed seeing people's reactions.
    Where Am I Now: Well, I still have yet to get a gig but I perform for people I barely know all the time at school, on the bus, etc. I can say that I can actually entertain a crowd now.

    Age: 17

    Hobbies other than magic: Music (trumpet, piano), modern dance (krumping, jerking), writing poetry,

    How I started in magic: As a kid, I was always fascinated with magic. I remember watching "World's Greatest Magic" on ABC Family for a whole week straight in 3rd grade. Then, three years ago, I was performing a bootleg bill vanish and my substitute teacher that period just happened to be a magician. He called me over and asked me what I was doing. Then he told me about Penguin Magic, taught me a few sleights, and I got started from there.

    Where am I now: I'm just a casual performer. I don't do gigs. I perform at school most of the time. Sometimes I might go to the mall or the local fair and perform there. At this age, I don't want to take people's money just to amaze them.

    Where do I come from: Born in New York City, raised in China, then came back to the U.S for elementary school. My mom and dad are full Chinese, but I think I have some Mongolian in me somewhere down the bloodline. And I tend to think I'm related to Atilla the Hun.
