“I'm the owner and performer of my own entertainment business, Modern Magic, and I perform everywhere: on stage and in festivals, even street magic.

When I was in 10th grade and my parents got separated, like any teen, it was hard for me. One day we saw this magician on television, David Blaine, and my father laughed. It was the first time I'd seen him laugh since the separation, so I wanted to learn how to do magic because I wanted to see his smile.

The average time it takes David Copperfield to create a new illusion is two and a half years.

What I think is needed to be a good magician is charisma, because you need to get that entertainment going on, and you have to be really determined, because it takes a lot of practice. When I started, I had a hard time shuffling cards, but over time I learned not only to control more my body, my hands, the dexterity, but also to be in control in a psychological way.

That’s when the creativity and charisma came. It changed me, the way I talk and act, the way I look at people, the way I move.

The thing about magic is I don't sell a product, really, the product is myself. So people have to know me to know my product, so it's kind of hard in a certain way because you can get a poster with me, but you don't know what I'm going to do, you don't know if I'm good or not, so you have to see it for yourself.

So the way I do my marketing is I go to public places and do magic right there. I show the audience what I can do and that's my way of finding new clients.”

As the "second oldest profession", Magic dates back as far as 2600 B.C.
