He has been performing sleight of hand, the art of illusion, and theater for more than 25 years. He motivates audiences to see beyond their challenges and self-imposed limitations and inspires them to take action by living bigger, bolder lives with his program “You Can Do the Impossible, Too!” He has shared his style of interactive sleight-of-hand, illusion, and humor with corporate audiences, theaters, universities, the United States Armed Forces, and for private social affairs all over the world. He is the author of the book “You Can Do the Impossible, Too!” His book details his journey of overcoming the debilitating neurological disorder Tourette Syndrome to become a success in business and in life.
