Q: “Are you a psychic?”
A: “I’m not a psychic, and don’t claim to be in my show. Everything is accomplished through psychology, sleight of hand, and theatrics.”
Q: “How did you learn this skill?”
A: “I started as a magician when I was a kid. As I grew up, I became more fascinated by the human mind and the way that people think. This became the new focus of my show, melding techniques that I had learned as a magician with my understanding of human nature.
Q: “How can I learn? Are there any books you recommend?”
A: I’m a huge fan of books on psychology and our minds. Moonwalking with Einstein is a great look at the world of super memory, and Thinking Fast and Slow by Kahnemahn provides insight into our decision-making skills. Another recent favorite is Behave by Robert Sapolsky, which is another fascinating look at our psyche and behavioral mechanisms.
Q: “Where do you live?”
A: “San Diego, CA born and raised!”
