I am not a magician.
But I am a magic fan. I enjoy sleight of hand, magic theory and psychology, and watching good magicians.
I like to think of it this way: not everyone who loves basketball and plays pickup games every Saturday is a basketball player. And when it comes to magic, I freely admit: I'm just a fan.
But sometimes fans can productively add to the conversation and contribute to the art. That's what I want to do here.
I love reading magic. I understand that instant video downloads are the future. I'm not fighting against that. I just still think there is room for reading. That's why I write. I used to "do art" when I was little. So I also illustrate too. Lately, a lot of my enjoyment from this hobby has come from writing and illustrating material from real magicians.
In my real life I am a Christian, a husband, a father, and a pastor. When the pandemic permits, I am also a scholar of ancient Semitic languages. If you are hankering for a sleep aid, can read my book on pragmatics in biblical Hebrew syntax.
