Adam Trent is regarded as one of the most blah blah etc etc. Ok, you guessed it… This is me writing this.

Let’s keep this short.

What comes to mind when you think of a “Magician”? I’ve always thought that Magic should be entertaining first and tricky second. I don’t want people to remember just the “tricks”, but also the laughs and the memories that were made. Strange?

I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t performing. I began with birthday party shows at age 9 for kids that were older than I was (slightly awkward), and corporate events when I was 13 (slightly illegal). At 14 I started street performing which was as the most amazing/brutal training a performer could ever have. It taught me to build a crowd be entertaining in the worst of situations. It discovered an audience’s true attention span, because they just walked away if things moved slow. At 18, I went to college in Los Angeles and got a degree in Finance and Entertainment Marketing. Apart from learning that a tiger would be tax-deductible, I got a crash course in LA’s music and comedy scene. I realized that the most important element in a show is the performer’s connection to the audience, and without that even amazing skill can fall as flat as a bad boy band.

So that’s the way I approach my performance style. I'll bet that you'll  feel very different than you expected to feel after a “Magic Show”. In fact, I’ll bet my reputation on it.

My apologies for not writing this in the “3rd person”. Here’s a spellling erorr to give this an organic feel.
