All through my teenage years, I read everything I could find about magic and magicians, and I collected magic tricks to build and improve my magic show. I was performing magic shows for kids parties and for nursing homes. I kept very busy for a kid living in a small Vermont town. At that time, I was known as G reat S cott. Here is my original business card that started it all!
I saw my first magician when I was 7 years old at a Blue and Gold banquet in a small town in Vermont. I was already attracted to music and theater, but had never seen something like a magic show, where one person could control the entire performance and hold the audience in their hand. I wanted to do that! After reading every book in my town library, the librarian asked me if I'd like to perform a show for the story time children. I accepted my first gig...and so it began.
