Winning Stage Contest in Las Vegas


 

Eric grew up in Anchorage, Alaska and his passion for magic began when he was 14. He saw David Copperfield perform live on stage, and was blown away by the illusions he saw and soon after decided that performing this art on stage was going to be his life's passion.


Since then his rise as a performing magician has been amazing. He has won numerous national awards and has traveled internationally as well as to many cities and towns through out the U.S. His popular stage show has been performed for numerous companies, organizations, schools, and other private parties.

 

Today, this Arizona entertainer continues to hone his skills as a performance artist, and is busy creating even more spectacular illusions for his performances to contemporary audiences.
