"I'm blessed to be able to create the unique, memorable experiences for guests from VIP celebrity parties to private event. To live on the central coast of California, travel to exciting places and be in such demand for my original style to the magical arts and entertainment is a dream come true!... To be able to combine my abilities with comedy, mentalism, observation and more and create moments that completely blow people away is so rewarding... Changing peoples perception about 'magic', making a huge difference to an event and bringing people together makes it all worth it!"
Rich was adopted at age 12 and learned to read at a very late age leaving him to his own resources as a young child. Using his highly developed sense of intuition, "off the charts" observational powers and ability to think on his toes, Rich has developed a new style and approach to the arts of magic, mentalism and comedy. Combining his survival instincts as a kid and his wittiness learned from his wonderful new family as an adult, Rich's style and effects will amaze, confuse, defy logic and create laughter! Rich is self taught and has focused his attention on the guests at a party... not the magic! It just happens that the magic is insane!
When not performing or working on magic related projects, Rich enjoys talking about business with successful self-employed friends. Rich lives on the Central Coast of California and enjoys hiking, martial arts, diving and being entertained by just about any type of artist.
