Tom has been a magician for nearly 50 years. Hence the title of his new book. He has performed a number of times at the famous Hollywood Magic Castle. He has taught magic at Akron University, Polk Community College and Maplewood Joint Vocational School. He has written numerous articles for magic magazines and even has his own monthly column in The Linking Ring (the International Brotherhood of Magicians monthly magazine). Tom also lectures all over the United States and Canada to the magic fraternity and is one of four people who have attended every one of the 41 Fechter’s Finger Flicking Frolic close-up conventions where he was once the Guest of Honor. Tom is a very good close-up performer and works well in any corporate event.
