What was your big "break" with magic?

"My big break with magic was when I got pulled over by cops for speeding just a little bit. I was driving home from a show and they asked me what I was doing and I said I was coming back from a magic show and the police asked me to show them a magic trick. So I actually hopped out of the car, had them to start recording me on my phone, did some magic and then they let me go. The next day I actually posted that on YouTube and in a couple days it had over two million views. Then I started to get invited on TV shows and that was the first time I had my big break!"

What was one of the biggest challenges you have faced in the pursuit of your dreams of being a full-time magician?

"One of the biggest challenges I have faced recently was covid-19, for years I spent a full year to book my calendar and book my tour that I had setup. I had all of these showcases that I did with dozens of shows lined up and then in one day, I had all of my shows and income go to zero. Which is kind of terrifying when you still have rent, car payments, cell phone bills and I was also paying people to work for me. When that happened I had to stop paying the people that we're working for me and completely shut down. It's scary when you don't know how you're going to feed yourself and help the people around you, but luckily we are working around the pandemic together and it seems like shows are starting to pick backup."
