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.
