Brian is an award winning magician with performances in Canada, the United States and Japan. Brian’s interests in magic began at the age of 8, studying sleight-of-hand technique under Canadian magician Alistair Younger. Brian has since entertained groups in corporate, public and private settings with performances ranging from close-up to parlor, stage and dinner theater.
In 2010 Brian won the prestigious Presidential Award from the Society of American Magicians and his original magic effects appear in Genii Magazine – one of the industry’s leading publications on the subject. Brian has a series of published notes available to students of magic and professional magicians – Coin Operated (2008) and The Notes (2017). Most recently, in partnership with fellow magician David Peck, Brian’s original creations are featured in an online video lecture, available for download at Penguinmagic.com.
Brian holds the distinction of Ph.D. of Magic from the famed 4F convention in Batavia New York. An invitation-only event held each year for the top close-up magicians from around the globe.
