Are you a dog or a cat person? No contest! I love me some dogs. As a kid I was raised breeding and showing Golden Retrievers and Shelties. In fact, my own dog Bittimin Jones has his own face book page. We go hiking all the time. He’s hilarious!
What is your favorite pizza topping? Hmmm.. That’s a tough one. I really don’t prefer an single topping. I like the “All Meat Everything On It” type of pizza.
Did you play sports or a band instrument in high school(what activities did you participate in - doesn't have to be associated with school)? I was a Nationally Ranked Swimmer as a kid. That pretty much dominated my life until my late teens when I got into drama...and girls. I suppose that’s a one-two punch that’ll knock out about any other activity.
What do you think came first, the chicken or the egg? Egg. I love eggs.
Tell us about your family. Married 20 years to my beautiful wife Shelley. Have two daughters. Juna is going to Bath Spa University in the U.K. and Lily goes to Orange County High School of The Arts. I brag way too much about my kids, so I won’t bore you with all the details, but they’re both super talented and overachievers in their specialties.
What would you like readers to know about you personally? I’m a chocoholic. I love “So You Think You Can Dance” AND “The Ultimate Fighter”. I like live musical theater AND boxing. I am a bit of an Amateur Boxing Historian. Does anybody else like those combinations? Also, I just finished the P90X exercise program.
What is your business? What "do you do?" My main job is performing educational magic shows for kids. My Amazing School Assemblies (the name of my business) include “The Bully Game”, “Random Acts of Character” , “Animal Magic” and more. I also inspire other entertainers to follow their dreams with Entertainer Coaching.
What is the best part of your job? First, I am blessed to do something that I love to do. I get to inspire 1000s of children and at the same time have a fantastically fun time! The kids crack me up. If I have fun, they have fun. And we do.
Who is your greatest supporter in your life and work? My wife and my daughters.
Who or what inspires you? Kids.
Is there something you are really passionate about? What is it? See above.
What is your favorite quote? “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible” - Walt Disney
What is your favorite magic trick? There are a few. I guess the favorite that I do doesn’t have a name. Here’s how it looks: I pour some Snapple in a glass, then magically and visibly it turns into a LIVE TARANTULA. It gets crazy screams every time.
