Biography: Mark Toland received his first magic book when he was only 3 years old. He wanted to learn magic so badly that he taught himself to read by comparing the text with the illustrations. Soon he was amazing his family and friends at special events. By the age of 8, Mark began to perform professionally at libraries, festivals, and schools.
Mark has since been inducted into the prestigious Junior Program at the Academy of Magical Arts and Sciences (commonly known as the Magic Castle in Hollywood), collaborated with Trinity Hospice to provide magical entertainment to patients on a volunteer basis, and has performed magic for hundreds of companies and events.
After graduating from Wichita State University in May of 2009 with a BFA in Music and Theatre, Mark now performs as a mentalist and illusionist full time. In his spare time he enjoys reading, singing, playing the piano, unicycling, juggling, and watching classic movies.
