Hi all. My name is Dave and I'm getting back into the game. Growing up, I was very much into close-up and card magic, and studied/practiced/performed as much as time would allow. In college, I found other loves and eventually worked my way into the film industry and almost completely stopped working on my card and sleight skills. Now, a decade later, I'm back. By day, I'm a professional filmmaker - which is a bit magical in itself - and I'm a new father - the most magical thing I've every experienced. I've made the decision to get back into this great field because I miss it, and because when my boy is old enough, I'd like to entertain and fool the heck out of him and his friends.

I'm putting most of my effort into the mentalism side, although not the psychic way - more mentalism as feats of brain power. Cold reading, "memorization" and "reading people and behavior" in unlikely and seemingly impossible ways. I'm interested in some of the more traditional card stuff too, but mostly mental magic and mentalism with cards. Also, I'm trying to keep it all in the realm of the unexpected and unassuming. That is, I don't want to present something with an item that one may not normally have on their person - aside from cards. As wonderful as slates and big book tests are, I want strolling routines, and stuff where until the effect happens, there's little question as to why I'm carrying a particular prop.

I'm so excited to return to magic as the industry seems to have grown and evolved in leaps and bounds. The gimmicks are wonderful, the methods are bold and astounding, and the community seems stronger than ever. I'm looking forward to learning and sharing with all of you in the Magic Café community!

Welcome Davdo,

And welcome back to Magic.

I like that you are discerning in which particular mental capabilities you are asserting.

Probably your Son and his friends will want you to pull a coin from their ear though. LOL

It is always nice to welcome someone back into the Magic (mercury card) fold.
