Influences & Inspiration
I was inspired by masters like Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Marcel Marceau and other great true artists that came before me as well as many friends and colleagues in the magic/theatrical/entertainment world whom I had the privilege to know and work with.
I'm also influenced by each audience I perform for, as their laughter, interaction and feedback nurtures my soul.
As per my shows and props I'm completely self contained. Always on time at least an hour before performance time for setup. The only requirement is an electric outlet near the performing area.
