Gordon Bean was born in Schenectady, New York in 1959. After attending Brown University and the State University of New York at Albany, he taught at the McBurney School in New York City. Currently living in Los Angeles with his fiancee, Gordon teaches English as a Second Language at Los Angeles City College and serves as librarian at the Magic Castle.
Branching off from Magiclab, (the company he founded with his friend Larry Horowitz), he's recently launched GordonBean.com to market his newer inventions. Gordon's
effects have been performed on television by such performers as Harry Anderson, J.B. Benn, and Paul Zenon, and currently available are: Jinks; The World's Wildest Joker; The New Limited Edition; Monte 3.0; Jaywalk (available with Fenik's The Mexican
Revolution); Joker, Joker/The Los Angeles Open; Temptation; and Stars.
Gordon's magic has taken him to many distant locations, and recently he had the honor of being asked by Ton Onosaka to travel to Tokyo to present his original creations. In addition to his efforts as an inventor, Gordon has contributed to Genii and MAGIC, as well as helping his friend Bill Goodwin edit the magazine Penumbra.
