World Championships

“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential … these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”

— Baseball great, Eddie Robinson
Greetings friends,
Question: How many years does it take to become a world champion?
Answer: 14 years…That’s how long I have been working with Romany, Diva of Magic. When she first arrived at Mystery School, she had a big dream and plenty of enthusiasm. Now, fourteen years later, she has won many of the world’s top honors, including The Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year, the International Brotherhood of Magicians “British Shield” and most recently, first place at the World Magic Seminar International Stage Competition. The world is watching Romany. She is one of the brightest shining stars in magic. Below is a picture of Abbi and Romany with me, taken backstage at the World Magic Seminar last week.

In addition, two of my students, Eric Gilliam and Reuben Moreland, won top honors in the teen competitions. It takes years of hard work and dedication. It is good to see our students succeed.
Asia Tour
I will be returning to Japan as part of a “Magic Castle All-Stars” show with many top performers from around the world, sponsored by Hollywood’s Magic Castle. I have been performing in Japan for thirty years and have a fascination with their magical culture that is reflected in my work.
