A typical day in my life includes…

studying the dark arts, creating freshly squeezed miracles and making strangers smile.

I was born…

in Richmond, VA. 

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the dry heat.

I’m listening to…

Drake, Anderson Paak and Bryson Tiller.

My family…

is as small as my circle of friends. They are as crazy as I am but I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

James Baldwin. He lived in an era where people of color faced so many challenges, I wonder how he would view the challenges we face today. 

One thing I cannot live without…

chapstick, especially in AZ.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a Jim Henson Muppeteer.

I’m inspired by…

all aspects of life. I find inspiration in the way a person walks up the street, how people talk with their hands, how music and movies elicit emotional responses and how words matter. My magic is often reflective of this.

The one person who motivates me is…

my son. He motivates me to be a better person daily. 

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

race and how people hide their prejudices. The only way to overcome fear is to tackle it head on. We would be much better as a country if we could have an honest discussion about race. 

The perfect day would be…

laying in the couch with a deck of cards in one hand and Cheetos in the other while binge watching Netflix. No phone calls. no responsibilities. 

My first job was…

a cashier at a gas station in Virginia. 

My favorite escape…

I can get lost in a movie. I turn my phone on silent and I get immersed in a great story. I leave all my worries and stress and become a part of the film.

My life…

is crazy as hell. I travel 200+ days a year to perform, create and speak about magic in front of groups of people who seem to enjoy what I do. I live a blessed life. 

Always…

peanut butter, hip hop and Supreme.

Never…

soup, country and Wrangler.

Favorite Quote…

Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” – James Baldwin

Biggest Dream…

to live to my fullest potential, to laugh daily and to love abundantly 

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who chew with their mouths open, those who break promises and people who put the toilet paper on the bar the wrong way.
