I started my own career at the ripe age of 13 delighting and entertaining everyone with magic. Magic has always been a passion and an interest of mine, and (at the age of 13) I just knew that magic and hypnosis were connected in a deep and special way. I struggled many times finding an audience, finding just the right time and place to show my magic and my hypnosis. Which was limited at the time to such things as “stiff and rigid arm” and other simple stuff.
My fascination with hypnosis has grown over the past decade and the absolute fun and sheer delight you get from performing on stage in front of fans only gets bigger and bigger. Are you a showman or showwoman? Now I am a Master Hypnotist recognized by the premier training ground in the Pacific Northwest and have taught scores and scores of people real secrets to hypnotic success in therapeutic settings. I have now turned my attention to stage hypnotists, to bring out the very best in what can be accomplished. You see, in the US, stage hypnosis has really been the driving force in really informing people about the magic of hypnosis. In addition to my stage hypnosis performing, I have also performed as an improv actor and I do stand up comedy, as well.
