Success can take many forms, financial, spiritual, health and happiness. The key is that no one else but you should dictate your definition of success.

As a Coach, John uses his creative problem solving skills to develop custom routines with his audiences as metaphors for his messages of overcoming adversity and being different is your superpower. When you work with John, the sessions are not about learning new effects as much as answering the questions “Why did you choose performing Magic as your artform?” and “What do you want to share about yourself through your magic?” John is a firm believer that audiences leave magic performances not remembering the specifics of a trick, but how you made them feel, and what they learn about themselves from his illusions and stories. He works to find his students' life passions and help custom create magic presentations that communicate who they are as human beings.
