How Being a Product Manager helped me become an Award-Winning TV Magician

As a Product Manager at Apple, Beats, CBS, and About.com, I’ve worked on building some INSANELY COOL products with Agile Methodologies and Scrum, including Beats Music (now Apple Music) and GameSpot.com (still GameSpot.com).  It might surprise you, but I use those same tools when crafting magic & mentalism. In fact, using a Product Manager’s toolbox, …

Another Very Successful Run at the Magic Castle

I’ve always love performing at the Magic Castle, whether it’s in one of the impromptu showrooms, or on the schedule with the award-winning Close-Up Magic “comedy Conspiracy theorist” show. But this week set a new record for fun at the Magic Castle: Felix Jones & my two-man show in the Castle’s world-famous Peller Theatre, where …

Headlining Again at the Magic Castle–Next Week!

Working closely with one of my favorite West Coast magicians, I’ve co-written a fantastic new magic & mentalism show that’s debuting at the Magic Castle’s Peller Theater, headlining from June 30th 2022 to July 3rd 2022, with three shows a night. It’s oddball, fun, and — according to preview audiences — pretty darn amazing.  Starring Swinging …

I’m still in shock, but…

The International Brotherhood of Magicians — the world’s largest association for professional and amateur magicians, with 15,000 members in 88 countries — held their annual awards.  I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I was voted Close-Up Magician of the Year!! This is beyond exciting… It’s like winning an Owl-Level Oscar, a Wizarding Webby, a Peabody of Prestidigitation! I’m now an internationally-award-winning magician.

Cover Feature in the Santa Fe New Mexican

It included a long preview of my spotlight performances at the Currents New Media festival. “Entertaining, astounding, and all too timely!”Santa Fe New Mexican Was exciting to perform …

Appearing (virtually) at NYC’s Most Famous Magic Theater… Tonight!

Okay, so the government’s UFO report turned out to be a nothingburger (sadface), but that only means the truth is still out there… and what better way to bring the truth to your coworkers than a private show with Andy Deemer, PrivatePsy?!? “Stranger Things meets David Copperfield!!”  Just some of the glowing reviews from last month’s …

February Research

While January was all about Bigfoot, February became a fantastic month of UFO chasing. I tackled a classic: John A Keel’s The Mothman Prophecies: A True Story. It’s a fascinating report of a town plagued by visitations, filled with olive-skinned giants and dwarfs in poorly-cut suits, vehicles floating over highway, the author’s radioactive sunburns. The …

Now A Magic Castle Performer
