A Magical Thinker
Michael graduated from Midland Lutheran College in 1990
with a Bachelor’s in Behavioral Science. While in college he visited a magic shop tucked in the back of a
craft store and began his life long journey into a wonder filled world. He began performing magic for friends
and Boy Scout functions but soon moved into comedy clubs and
Later he opened his own magic shop
called “Magic and Mirth” in Omaha Nebraska where he began to show others how to be amazing and have
fun too! In 1994 Mike relocated to New Orleans and spent the next ten years traveling and
entertaining in Atlanta, Chicago, and Las Vegas.
Today Michael lives in Phoenix and has been enjoying the Southwestern life while continuing
to amaze and delight audiences. He has given lectures, taught classes and produced DVDs that share the secret
of his style of “conversational performing.”
People have discovered how they can these tools to have fun, share joy and
break down barriers; all by using magic tricks and being themselves.
