Brian has always been intrigued by performers. At the age of 3 he vowed to be a magician. His parents finally bought him a magic set & a magic wand. He would go to the circus every year just to see if there would be a juggling or magic act there.

Now, Brian's act is primarily juggling with some magic thrown into the mix. He started winning local juggling competitions and went on to perform in international competitions. He competed against people from Russia, Germany, Austraila, France, and many other people from around the globe. He has Traveled all over the United States showcasing his talent. Brian's other talents include coin & card manipulation, dice stacking, and writing poetry. 1
