Glenn Morphew’s Homing Card

I thought I posted this awhile ago, but I guess it got lost in the shuffle. Last year, I attended a Christmas party at Midwest Magic in Franklin Park, IL. I had a great time and got to see Marshall Brodien, David Parr, Tim Felix, Tom Dobrowolski, and more. I also met Glenn Morphew for the first time. What a …

TFD 2012

For the past year, I have been organizing a magic convention that finally took place last week. It was a TON of work, and there were plenty of headaches along the way. But if you asked me if it was worth it, I would have to quote one of my favorite professional wrestlers, Stone Cold Steve Austin, as I replied …

Tri-C Magic Convention Review

I’ve attended the Carolina Close-up ConventionĀ (a.k.a. Tri-C) for the last three years. I usually attend 3 to 5 conventions a year, but this one is always my favorite. There’s just something about the atmosphere and the close knit unit of guys who attend. It’s also one of the only conventions where the attendees are as talented as the scheduled performers. …

2011 Lecture Tour- Baltimore, MD

Baltimore was the final stop of the tour where I lectured at the Denny and Lee Magic Studio. The shop is stocked with hundreds of books, DVDs, and tricks. It even has a pet pig… I’m not kidding.

2011 Lecture Tour- New York City

New York City was one of the coolest stops on the tour. Tony Chang was a great host. We got a chance to crash at his place and see some really cool magic. He also took us to some amazing restaurants around the city. I only knew Tony from our interactions on the internet magic forums and the videos he …

2011 Lecture Tour- Montreal

In the cities leading up to our trip to Montreal, I heard two things from most people I talked to: 1. Montreal is very “European” 2. Try the poutine After some GPS issues, Ben and I arrived to meet up with Derrick Chung for a late lunch in Chinatown. Derrick had asked me before we arrived what kind of places …

2011 Lecture Tour- Ottawa

After leaving Toronto, Ben and I headed to Ottawa to hang out with Eric Leclerc. He’s an amazing magician and a really cool guy. I was first introduced to Eric’s magic when he was featured on Jay Sankey’s Underground Jam DVD. For my money, Eric was the standout performer for sure. I immediately added his “Final Cap in Bottle” to …
