    So, my questions are:

    -Do you fell that after your first performance at age 11 until today what you have achieved makes you realized or do you want more from yourself?

    -What are your thoughts on internet magic community today?

    Grande abraço, David;)

    Since you are a stage illusionist I have a question for you,

    What would you do if you lost all of your stage illusions? Here is a Scenario You have a show that you cannot back out of do to a Contract that favors your clients and will make you bankrupt if you pull out; but if you do the show you would get half a million. What would you do in this situation? What books, material, etc. would you purchase?

    How do you script your shows ie the art of making a routine?

    Who does the most work, The magician, assistant, or the Techies?

    Well there you go some more questions to add to the proverbial hat.


    If I was blind and CEO of Cheveron Gas who wants an illusionist for a big Chevron convention and fun day for all Chevron employees I am hand picking entertainment for this convention/fun day and approach you. How would you sell yourself and show?
  18. What stage magicians did you look up to during your younger years? Have you ever met any of these magicians?

    Ha yeah it was funny I am sure you are very intelligent to get that because I certainly didn't get it for a few minutes. You must be a great thinker because I had to think hard to find the joke. Maybe submit it to "The Worst" Magazine?
  20. I don't mean to be rude, but what's the status on the podcast? Thanks.
