Hey everybody,

I'm excited to be here. After seeing Banachek on the Joe Rogan show, as well as Derren Brown, my interests in mentalism, as well as magic has been born. Lately, I feel that the world has been so focused on politics and negative nonsense, while the typical arts of music, TV, dance, and movies have become incredibly over-saturated. People are bored, people are spoiled, and people are not moved as easily as they used to be. Yet, magic, and even mentalism adds a sense of awe that humanity still (thankfully) doesn't appear to be immune to. Further, I feel magic/mentalism reminds people that anything is possible as nihilism continues to grow. That said, I look forward to learning the skills and the basics of card magic, then coin magic, and eventually some mentalism. All in all, I am excited for the journey that awaits, and realize it won't be easy, but that practice will be key.

Welcome! Take each topic a bite at a time and have fun learning about all the possibilities! It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the different options, but if you work through a few of the key books, you'll quickly start to realize what areas you're most interested in.
