    ___________________________________________________________________________________
     

    By the age of 23, John published two books, was on America’s Got Talent, and consulted a national Toyota commercial.

     

    Featured on NBC, ESPN, WEEI, the NFL Network, and the Associated Press, John currently travels and presents keynotes on creativity & intrinsic motivation for leadership conferences. In addition for his stage and close up magic, you may recognize John’s name from the news where he captured national headlines when Tom Brady talked about him during his press conference.

     

    Most well known for being the Team Magician for the New England Patriots and the Opening Act for the Malcolm Mitchell Tour, many people "credit" John as one of the reasons for their legendary victory during Super Bowl 51 (the SAME year they hired a Team Magician, the Patriots pulled off the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history - we'll let you draw the conclusion)

     

    John's newest projects include working as a Producer on two television shows and an Associate Producer for an upcoming movie.

    Professional Headshots by DJ Meads

  • What Makes Him Different?

    His Style:

    • John erases the stereotypical "magician" look and creates a more modern and laid-back atmosphere
       
    • Rather than using bunnies, top hats, streamers, and large, unfamiliar props, he believes magic should be about performing extraordinary feats with ordinary objects. This is why he uses simple, organic, and borrowed props such as playing cards, dollar bills, red solo cups, cell phones, footballs, and magazines in his shows (fun fact: he can actually fit his entire act in a backpack)
       
    • People say that John’s demeanor is so down-to-earth and friendly that you feel like you’ve known him for five years, even though it’s only been five minutes

     

    His Philosophy:

    • Many magicians think their goal is to fool the audience - John doesn’t share that same philosophy
       
    • After writing and publishing two books, The Perfect Illusion: Life & The Magic Behind Success, he realized that the goal of a magician is to NOT fool their audience -- the real goal of a magician is to make sure people are having fun and creating a memorable experience
       
    • As the "Team Magician" for the Patriots and performing for Super Bowl Champions, he knows how to break down boundaries and create a true connection with his audience members (he even shares some funny stories during his show about the players)

    His Message:

    • John’s ultimate goal is to use magic as a tool to prove that “impossible” is just a word. He wants his audience members to take that mindset and apply it to their everyday life. That’s why throughout his show he focuses on the lives of the audience members, such as incorporating things on their bucket lists into his act 
       
    • The real job of an entertainer is bringing people together that probably would never communicate otherwise to share an experience. John believes watching people come together and be amazed at the same time is more amazing than what caused them to be amazed in the first place.
       
    • John advocates that “magic” happens everyday - anything in life that seemed “impossible” at first and then became possible is “real” magic to him. Think of Super Bowl 51 as an example. As the official "Team Magician", did John have anything to do with that? We'll let you decide

  • Testimonials

  • John's Book:
    The Perfect Illusion: Life.

    Welcome to the mind of a magician—an honest liar—who can prove you shouldn't believe everything you perceive.


    We wake up in the morning and look out the window seeing the world as it is. But the beauty about illusions is they prove our perceptions aren't always true. Therefore, how do we know if something is real or not? If we all perceive things differently, then what is the truth? Are we living with the truth? Or are we living with illusions that we think are the truth? How do we know?

    This book contains not only the secrets of magic, but the tale of a human spirit and the psychological struggle between emotion and imagination. A philosophical outlook at what separates those who perceive the world as it appears, and those who imagine their own reality. Welcome to the greatest illusion ever created, the act more commonly referred to as “Life.”

    Let the show begin.

  • John's Keynote:
    The Magic Behind Success

    John's keynote demonstrates the connection between the art of magic and the world of business.
     
    More specifically, it explores the overlap between the innovation and communication techniques entertainers use when creating new ideas, developing a routine, performing, and a parallel comparison on what it takes to run a successful business. It analyzes the entrepreneurial magicians and their creative process behind developing new routines, while also examining the verbal and non-verbal communication techniques they use to connect with their audience members when performing.
     
    In the end, the audience will learn that even though sleight of hand is an important factor in becoming a magician, creative thinking and effective communication strategies are more important in order to have the greatest impact on your audience and have a successful show – or in an entrepreneur’s case, a successful business.
