He made an introductory post on this message board but that was it. He was a minor celebrity in the retro gaming community and he had just begun to get into performing magic. He took his life in January 2014, after struggling with depression. I know one of the major contributing sources of stress on him was his financial difficulties. He was such a talented performer with so much charisma and stage presence, that I know he could have definitely launched a successful birthday party business with a little bit of coaching. I am really sad that I never got a chance to talk to him. I only recently discovered him, but without ever having met him, I feel as though I have lost a dear friend. I am hoping somebody here might have been in the magic club with him and can help me to know more about him, especially on the magic side. What were some memorable routines of his? What material was he working on? Etc. I know he had wanted to put together a Renn Fair close-up set, and also a Mad Hatter show with his wife.

I found this photo album which he mentioned on his blog was the very first birthday he performed (for free for a friend of his). I love the idea of a Star Wars Jedi themed kids show. What a great hook!

In retrospect, I think my previous statements about wishing I could have helped him were a little bit misguided. It seems that he already had a ton of people offering him material and emotional support. I doubt very much I could have made any difference at all. Depression really is a monster.

Indeed.
