"Vancouver's Limited Edition Magician"
From the young age of 15, in his hometown of Vancouver, BC. Michael started performing magic. He learned from the best - taking classes at a local magic shop in New Westminster called 'Must B Magic'. His first job was working at Gizmoz, one of Richmond's leading magic shops, where he performed for shoppers and delighted audiences with his illusions. Soon after, he was invited to perform at his first overseas destination, Fiji. Over the years, he's worked hundreds of events - from birthdays and weddings to corporate shows. He's also taught magic in schools, and been a celebrity magician for Tasty Indian Bistro and Boston Pizza. In addition to his work as a magician, Michael is a magic teacher and mentor to his students. He has given private lessons to children and adults who continue learning and performing magic to this day. Michael has traveled to Australia, London and Mexico, but Vancouver will always be his home. Yet despite his local fame, he has always remained down to earth. It takes years of practice, performing, failure and success to become a great entertainer. This year marks his 30th anniversary in magic - something he is extremely proud of, and he still loves performing on the streets of his hometown.
