Merry Christmas, Happy New year… and Happy Valentine’s!

I know, it’s been almost FIVE months since I updated my blog so please do forgive me. A lot has happened and I trust you’re enjoying 2014.

The pilot show we shot back in late summer last year – “Think About It” – is now being worked on with a production company. If it eventually gets picked up by a network, we will be on to bigger things with it and be able to create more exciting episodes. In case you missed it (?!) – Check it out the sizzle reel.

In late October I had my first International gig! I was flown out to Qatar to perform at a two-day corporate event. This was an eye opening experience for me as I’ve never traveled to the Middle East before. Performing in a suit in 40 degree weather was not easy. Thankfully I stayed in the hotel and conference center during most of the daylight hours. I had a few days to check out the capital city, Doha. The hot desert sun was soothing closer to the evening and rather enjoyable. I look forward to performing in the Middle East again in the future. (see picture below) As great as Qatar was, I’m looking forward to my next gig outside of the Canada in a couple of weeks. A wedding in Detroit on Family Day long weekend! Oh you’re worried about my safety in Detroit? I’m a magician… how bad could it be?! šŸ˜

November and December are always fun. Performing at family parties and corporate events is one of my favorite things to do. As busy as the holiday season can be, I’m glad January is about over. From my family to yours, best wishes for the new year.
