How long have you been interested in magic?
Julian became interested in magic at the age of five, when he saw a street magician make a signed dollar bill appear inside of a lemon. Later that year he got to see Rick Wilcox perform live in Wisconsin Dells. During the show he was chosen to join the magician on stage to help with an escape trick. That Christmas, Julian received his very first magic kit, by Rick Wilcox! He began performing to his friends and family whenever he could. He was completely hooked. He performed his first show when he was twelve years old, and earned about 50 dollars. Ever since then he's become one of the youngest most versatile performers, bringing a new, fresh, and exciting spin on modern magic.

What do you love most about your job?
Julian says that there is no single answer to that question, as there are a many number of things that make magic enjoyable, but here are some that come to mind for him:
The reactions people have to magic. There is nothing more satisfying than getting great reactions from the people you are entertaining. Some people respond so vocally and spontaneously that it is a joy to witness and gives that feeling of satisfaction.
Julian really enjoys meeting (and entertaining) new people. In this business, you are meeting new people all the time and from all different walks of life.
The community. The art of magic has such an encouraging and supportive community. There is always someone to talk to, ask questions to, discuss principles with, or just simply jam with. There are hundreds of conferences and gatherings, where magicians, from all over the world, can get together to practice, perform, and learn.
The mystery factor, not necessarily the mystery of magic, but more in the places you end up and the things you see. Julian gets to see things that he wouldn't get to see in everyday life; magic can be a great adventure.
Traveling is also a big part of magic. Whether it's driving up and down Illinois, or hopping on a plane to perform in another country.
Why should our clients choose you?
Julian, a high school freshman, started practicing his magic craft at the ripe old age of five and began performing shows at age 11. A natural-born entertainer, he has been amusing audiences since he was old enough to talk. Some say he never stopped talking, thus the push toward entertainment to diffuse his energy and need to make others outside of his family and fellow classmates laugh. He maintains a sense of professionalism in his relationships with clients and in his magic. He also adds a touch of youth and uniqueness that others can't. This allows him to connect perfectly with both children and adults through his magic and comedy. Julian's original style puts a unique and fun twist on each show. He even personalizes the shows, creating a once in a life time experience for you and your guests!
Julian has been featured all across the U.S., including, Illinois, Wisconsin, Colorado, Utah, Maine, Florida, Indiana, and Michigan.
