Video: MagiCuba Magic Competition

Quotes

1:25 – There was something magical about doing the whole show in the local language, connecting to the locals. It was a lot of effort and was well worth it.”

Podcast Interview: The Magic Word

Quotes

2:15 – “The level of talent at this MagiCuba conference is very intimidating. We’re here with some of the best magicians in the world. But I thought that sometimes it’s good to get out of your comfort zone. It was one of those ‘what the heck’ moments when you say let’s just do it, throw caution to the wind and compete in the One Trick Challenge Competition.”

4:50 – “The theme of the trick I chose to use in the competition was the theme of a blind magician. I’ve been really impressed over the years with how magicians who have physical challenges overcome these challenges to become outstanding magicians.”

7:25 – “I created a routine that had context that made sense that I had the opportunity, while at National Geographic, to travel the world and see the top magicians who overcame physical challenges. I felt that if I could convince the audience that it wasn’t a trick, it would be a miracle.”

What They’re Saying About

The CEO Magician

Radio Interview: Choose To Be Curious

Quotes

4:40 – “Most people have never seen world-class, professional close-up magic. These magicians spend their lives creative magic moments that take minutes to perform, but take months or even years to learn and decades to develop.”

7:00 – “Magic doesn’t occur in the hands of the magician as most people think. it occurs in the minds of the spectators. You can study all you want, but if you’re not performing people, you’re just practicing. My focus is to operate in the space — in magic and in business — between the improbable and the impossible — something that takes us outside of our typical understanding of what’s possible and what is not.”

19:00 – “In terms of creating and implementing strategy, thinking like a magician helps you think problems through to the solutions — how to best get from point A to point B.”

Quotes

Page 1 – “The great outside influences on my magic would have to be: 1. surrealism art, walking the fine line between possible and impossible, 2. playing piano, injecting passion and feeling into the art of magic, 3. as a kid, experiencing what is called ‘kayfabe’ in professional wrestling, walking the fine line between the ‘real’ and the ‘fake’, 4. the impact of sports in NYC when the underdog Mets, Knicks and Jets, all made the impossible…possible, and 5. the impact of Broadway musicals during my formative years such as ‘Pippin’ and Doug Henning’s ‘The Magic Show’.”

Page 2 – “My routines are distinctive and thematic, walking the fine line between possible and impossible, not treating effects as puzzles to be solved.”

Page 2 – “I am most excited for the future of magic about the impact of international schools of magic thought, and the impact of women and people of color in the magic community.”
