  • Magic is not about having a puzzle to solve. It's about creating a moment of awe and astonishment. And that can be a beautiful thing
  • As a Magician, I try to show things to people that seem impossible. And I think magic whether I'm holding my breath or shuffling a deck of cards is pretty simple: It's practice, it's training and it's experimenting while pushing through the pain to be the best that I can be. And that's what magic is to me. [2]

  • My old man taught me to approach everything like it was the first time I'd tried it, that way I wouldn't know what was impossible. Dope quote, dad.[3]
