Hey everyone,
My name is Doug Pace. I am a 15 year old magician from Akron, Ohio. (Soon to be 16, yipeee!)

I have been doing card magic for about 3 years now. Some of my favorite magicians are Ernest Earick, Ed Marlo, Larry Jennings, Ray Kosby, The Buck Twins, Cap Casino, Alan Grose, Chris Kim, Kelvin Kwong, Dustin Crispo, Jason Tang, Morgan Bondett, Troy Hooser, Josh Jay, Darwin Ortiz, Jack Carpenter, Lee Asher, Aaron Fisher, etc...

I am interested in close up sleight of hand. I am not much of a performer, (but I would like to spend time on focusing on the presentation aspect of magic, but since I am busy with school, I am only in 10th grade, I dont have much time to do shows, so my main concern is sleight of hand.

I do, however, read about the presentation of magic...Stong Magic (Ortiz) Magic and Showmanship (Henning Nemls) etc...hehe. But my main focus is sleight of hand. I am also interested in card cheating. Not to cheat people, but rather to study for my personal satisfaction. I am interested in false dealing, hand mucking, riffle stacking, etc.

As far as card sleights go, anything that involves sleight of hand floats my boat. But I do also love watching devlish self working miracles (such as those of Simon Aaronson.)
A am also a fan of flourishes. I am inspired by Brian Tudor, The Buck Twins, Lee Asher, etc. The main aspect of floursihes I like are cuts. If you want more info, check out my close friend, Cap Casino's website:

Anyway, I look forward to posting on The Magic Cafe and I wish everyone the best of luck in magic!

Welcome to the Cafe, Doug. Gee 16 years old. If only I could remember that far back. You've come to the right place to improve your skills. You'll be spending that little bit of free time you have right here with us. Sit back and have a snack on me while you browse the menu. Smile Smile

Welcome Doug!

It's nice to see a familiar name from Ring 2100 here.

No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

Hi everybody!
Thanks so much for the nice welcome and kind comments, I really appreciate them.
BroDavid, I do remember you, and I do plan on going back to the FCM, I really had a great time when I went. I have been very busy and haven't had a chance to go back. I am not going to be able to make it to the August meeting because I go out of town on August 1. I do plan on going in the future though!
Thanks again.
Time to go practice Smile
