James F - Ohio Magicians
Jim grew up in Cincinnati and started out his career performing magic at birthday parties and schools after he won the "Best Senior Trick" in high school. He continued perfecting his skills in college and won first place at the Bowling Green State University Family Weekend Talent Show in Bowling Green, OH. Normal jobs bored Jim, so he started performing at amusement parks, including Cedar Point and Kings Island. In 2007, he got his pyrotechnics assistant license and started working for Rozzi Fireworks in Cincinnati. Adding to his different and interesting list of jobs, Jim has toured for 13 years as Illusion Manager for an illusionist based out of Detroit and Las Vegas. He has also worked as a Stage Manager, Camera Operator and Audio Engineer for the touring production of Masters of Illusion Live! This amazing opportunity meant working with, in no particular order, Gay Blackstone, Greg Gleason, Farrel Dillon, Titou the French Magician, Rick Thomas, Jonathan Pendragon, Tom Burgoon, Michael Finney, Aaron Radatz, Michael Grandinetti, and lots of other true magic pros in theaters and arenas all around the United States. Now living in Cleveland, Jim is available to make your next event a magical success!
