“The art of a magician is to create wonder. If we live with a sense of wonder, our lives become filled with joy.” – Doug Henning
As a young boy I received my first magic set, discovered my first Magic Shop, and saw my first professional magician, Doug Henning. I knew then I wanted to create wonder for the rest of my life.
I began performing as a teenager, doing birthday parties, charity events and trying to create amazement and fun for everyone I met. After I graduated HS and College, I no longer performed but began making an impact on lives in a different way.
I began a career of teaching and mentoring both children and young adults. One day towards the end of my teaching career I used a magic trick to illustrate a lesson that some of the students were struggling with. To my great surprise not only did the students immedately understand what I had been teaching, I saw in their faces the same wonder and joy I experienced as a child. From that moment on I knew I wanted to get back to peforming. I fell back in love with magic again.
So after 25 years of teaching and mentoring I retired and began my career as a professional magician where over the last 16 years I have had the great privilege of creating lasting memories and magical moments in stadiums, arenas, cruise ships, schools, libraries, homes and more.
While it is true that by profession I am a magician, I prefer to think of myself as an entertainer that uses illusions, sleight-of-hand, puppets, balloons, story-telling and more to create an event that is filled with astonishment, amazement and fun. My goal is having the audience, both children and adults, share in an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives.
“It was a wonderful show. Not only did he amaze and engage the children, he did the same with the adults. A truly wonderful show. Thank you, Michael.” Lorraine Stanaliz, Youth Librarian at Whitehall Township Library
The Amazing Magi put on a wonderful show. Both the adults and children were amazed and entertained. We will definitely have him back. Thank you Michael. Francis Mickey, Outreach Coordinator, St. John the Baptist De Lasalle Church.
Not only do I love entertaining audiences, I also love using my gifts to help people and causes. I have entertained and helped organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, the National Kidney Foundation, Special Olympics, and many local organizations raise thousands of dollars.
People often ask me I give so much back to charity. My answer is simple, I absolutely love entertaining audiences and bringing happiness into people’s lives. And it’s true that I have 3 Master’s Degrees and have even taught at the University level. But bringing a smile to a child’s face are the moments people truly remember. It is what I most remember and I consider that a life well-lived.
Michael has helped us raise thousands of dollars through his dedication, his caring and his incredible gift of entertaining people. He made sure that not only did the people have a fantastic time, he spread the message of Habitat for Humanity. Timothy Daley, Executive Director, Berks Habitat for Humanity
