I'm John Danna from Pasadena, Texas. I've been doing magic since I was about 10 years old (I'm 55 now). As a kid, any money I could scrape up was spent on magic tricks at Archie's Fun Shop in Pasadena where a young Paul Driscoll worked. Over the last 10 years, I've mostly done annual shows for the elementary school where my wife is a principal. I attend TAOM conventions when I can. By coincidence, one of my nephews married one of Ramon Galindo's granddaughters (some of you from Texas probably know Seņior Galindo). This is a great forum and I look forward to being part of the community!

Welcome Jdansti,

I wish I'd started that young.

I hope to see you in "The Little Darlings" forum.

Were your earlier interests in Kids and Stand-Up Magic?

Hi Mary,

Well, I started young but didn't really have my act together, so to speak, until I was in my 20's.

Yes, most of the things I do are kid's and stand-up magic. I've done some shows which included more stage-ish tricks like the zombie ball. I'll definitely check out the Little Darlins forum. Thanks!

I spent a few years in CA, from about 67 to 72, Long Beach Lakewood and Bellflower was my stomping ground. Attended B&H School of magic for a year. Now I am 59 and think we might have something in common :).
Welcome here, from a newbie :)

Hi Cosmic Truth. Welcome to you as well! Yeah, we're close to the same age. How old were you when you attended the School of Magic?
