The Magician

    In 1987, I developed the Magic Numbers Game in Turbo Pascal 3.0 and later the Magic Character Game in Turbo Pascal 5.0 in 1988-9, followed by Magic Hearts Game in 1989. 

In 1996, I programmed the game in Asymetrix Toolbook for the HCC Ybor staff talent show.
    Currently the game has been developed using HTML and JavaScript for the Internet.

    Below is my photo in costume for our performances before local elementary and junior high schools in conjunction with EME 2040 classes of preteachers visiting the public schools through 2004.

    For the last 12 years I have performed at many Jacksonville elementary and junior high schools. Since 2002 I have performed over 40 times on cruise ships on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.

    From 2007 through 2015 I performed at the North Campus Family Literacy Fair.

   I am available to perform my Magic Numbers at any time, just give me a phone call at (904) 614-0531.

Hope I don't scare you.
