Originally from Ohio, Shawn began honing his skills at restaurants, parties, and festivals such as the Taste of Cincinnati. He traveled and worked in New York City, New Orleans (during Mardi Gras!), Boulder, Colorado, and Zurich, Switzerland where he studied with master magicians Slydini, Cellini, Johnny Fox, and others to learn the fine art of magic and street performing.
After a summer season at King’s Island amusement park, Shawn moved west to Arizona and continued his work at parties, festivals, and fairs. He was a featured performer at the Tempe Festival of the Arts for 25 years.

Escaping the summer heat, Shawn spent several summers in Boulder, Colorado performing on the Pearl Street Buskers Academy and at many festivals and fairs throughout the southwest. Eventually, he took his show to the streets and festivals in Europe. Based in Zurich, he was able to ride the rails and perform in many cities from Oslo to Rome, from Berlin to Paris. From these early experiences, Shawn learned how to entertain all kinds of audiences in the most challenging of venues.
With his enthusiastic charm and strong magic, Shawn’s experience and versatility enable him to connect with and entertain audiences of all ages.
