‘Lefty’ sweeps up a list of skills for judicious magicians

Grizzly Bear Appearance – Hallmark Channel

On Monday, March 11th, 2013, magician Murray SawChuck performed the largest illusion with a live animal on morning television. At this point, the illusion of Murray producing a 950 pound grizzle bear on TV is a dangerous trick that no other magician has ever before attempted on live TV. Co-hosts Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare were shocked and amazed but unharmed by their close encounter!

Tommy Wind What’s On Cover Shoot

For a last minute cover shoot of What’s On magazine, Tommy Wind and his team brought me in as “artistic director” for this photo shoot. I thought it was key to have a shot that represented the two major elements of his show, magic and music.

The self-proclaimed “Dennis the Menace of Magic,” Murray Sawchuck, brought his own variety of mischievous magic for a second time to Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show. I joined Murray as his magic consultant for his TV shoot, which took place on the backlot of Universals Studios, CA.

Alice Cooper’s Christmas Pudding Show

I didn’t think it would be possible to top the amazing time I had in 2011 performing at Alice Cooper’s Christmas Pudding show, but this year was incredible. I got to share the stage with some rock stars like Don Felder from the Eagles and Sebastian Bach, the former lead singer of Skid Row.

Tommy Wind

After his successful run at the Clarion Hotel, Tommy Wind has moved his show to his new home on the Strip, The Boulevard Theater. Tommy Wind, A Unique Magic & Music Experience features some spectacular and exciting new illusions, as well as featuring Tommy playing more instruments on stage than he has ever before.
