My step father was an enormous influence on my career. He challenged me to let nothing stand in my way and always believe in myself. Because of him, I started to believe that I could and would become a master illusionist. Additionally, he helped me create original routines when I was just beginning and constructed them for me as well. In fact, to this day one of his original creations is still being used in my shows each and every week! It is one of my fan favorites!

As a magician, I’m excited to see a movie dedicated to the art of illusion. Most of my performances focus on deconstructing magic. I take everyday objects and use them to create illusions designed to challenge your preconceptions. Now You See Me also takes a similar approach to illusions. The concept of the film is unique as the characters use illusions for the greater good. Although the new movie Now You See Me relies on CG effects, the actors revealed that they did have to learn the art of illusion. Here are some shots from behind the scenes of Now You See Me because I know audiences are always interested in learning the secrets behind the magic (although a good illusionist never reveals his secrets!)
