Born on September 6th 1983, John Paul stumbled upon his passion for magic at just 6 years old when his father introduced him to the “vanishing red ball”, a little trick his father would do to entertain JP with magic where a little wooden red ball would disappear and reappear from his fathers hands. Later on he was introduced to other classic tricks such as The Chinese Linking Rings and the Cups and Balls. This interaction as a small child would soon grow to an obsession which allows JP to light up smiles on peoples faces from all walks of life.
John Paul remembers watching David Copperfield on a TV special and seeing David levitate and vanish a full size passenger train car while surrounded by audience members. This set in stone JP’s love and desire to learn everything he could about the art of magic. Shortly after that TV special aired, John Paul’s father decided to take him to a local magic shop where he had access to tricks as well as a library of books on the art of magic. This was the beginning to a long road of secondary education. John Paul soon attended a number of magician conferences where he was able to meet and learn from professional magicians from all over the world. This exciting opportunity allowed JP the ability to gain extensive knowledge, skills and experience by learning correct behaviors for performing magic as an art from the best magicians in the world. Now living in Kansas City, John Paul performs his magic for private events, weddings and corporate functions all around the Kansas City Metro Area including Overland Park, Shawnee, Olathe, Leawood and surrounding areas.
