DJ Lecture.png

I'm pleased to offer my virtual lecture completely for FREE to magic clubs or groups of any size through the Zoom platform.


For this two hour lecture, I have handpicked some of my favorite magic and mentalism creations to teach.


I’ll also pull back the curtain on the creative process to share advice on creating magic.


If that wasn't enough you will also get a first look at some incredible unpublished effects!

Everything taught is practical, workable material that is easy to do.


Most of the effects involve cards of sorts, but also photographs, dice, symbols, books and even UNO cards. 

Following the lecture, there will be exclusive discounts and bundles offered to the attendees.


So if your local club or group is ready to have fun learning some awesome magic, send me an email to book a date and time.


Remember, there is NO FEE for the virtual lecture and I look forward to the opportunity to share my magic with you!



I am also eager to share my magic with your club live and in-person!

I will be happy to present my award winning magic and mentalism creations, while also sharing some killer effects that I have not yet published.

I’ll also pull back the curtain on the creative process to share advice on creating magic.

Everything taught will be practical, workable and deceptive material that can be done by any skill level performer.


There will be a healthy mix of marketed items, impromptu effects and easy to make gimmicks.

So if your local club is eager to enjoy a fun night learning some awesome and unique magic & mentalism, send me an email to book a date and time.


Note:  At the moment I'm currently only booking in-person lectures in the Northeast United States (certain areas within New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania).  Please reach out via email for more information.
