Ian has entertained thousands of people over twelve years, including major corporations such as Bell, the Bay and Compaq. Ian is also the co-author of the internationally acclaimed Highway to Success: The Entertainer’s Roadmap to Business which has been recognized by the magic industry as the definitive business guide to entertainment and is available for all types of events from community, corporate, festivals and for private functions.

Perceived as one of the participants, Ian reads the crowd for just the right moment to intimately captivate and engage your guests. They watch the magic, up-close and personal, right in his hands. A witty, eccentric, and spontaneous conversationalist, Ian entices your guests to participate—not simply spectate Ian’s trademark magical style involves playful interaction with his audience.
“Ian engages the spectator on a personal level and captivates their attention with witty delight. He leads them to an astonishing, intense, and humorous culmination that reaches far beyond the wonder of the magic itself.” —M.C. Dufresne, Rev. Cda Agency
