Which trick do you consider to be the most difficult to perform? Juggling because if you don't practice it every day you will loose what you already can do! Learning two diabolos / chinese yo-yos took many months. Now I'm learning three and it is very time consuming.
How many different magic tricks can you perform? That's a difficult question to answer as I take things in and out of the show regularly. I don't count the number of tricks. I try to polish each one to perfection.
How did you get started in this business? I started by twisting balloons and doing small magic tricks. Now my wife does the balloons and I stick to what I do best the magic.
Houdini was considered the King of Magic. Do you try to model yourself after any great magicians, such as Houdini? I enjoy many magicians too many to number. You can learn from everybody. Most of the people I admire are not well known.
