SD: How did your interest in magic start?
AT: I start about 8 years old when my parents took me to see David Copperfield. I remember how much fun my family was having and after that I decided I wanted to do the same thing. My parents bought me a magic book and the rest is history.
SD: What magicians have inspired your brand of magic?
AT: Growing up, I was and still am a big fan of Penn and Teller. Besides magic, my inspiration comes from comedy and music. I find my themes and premises from them.
SD: Your shows is a combination of pop star and magician.
AT: Yeah, it is a blend of comedy, magic and music. If you like magic then you will love the show. If you don’t like magic, you will still love the show. For me, music is a driving force of the show. I love that my show mergers several difference art forms into one.
SD: What is your favorite magic trick to perform?
AT: I clone myself and teleport across the stage. I always make sure that I am constantly adding things to my show to keep it exciting and fresh.
SD: What can the audiences look forward to?
AT: My show is for magic fans and non-magic fans. I perform all types of magic, so there is something for everyone to enjoy. I also perform some very futuristic things that covers all aspects of magic while showing where magic is going. Much of the show is brand new. I have lots of great visual effects and some great technology.
