Justin Purcell

Justin Purcell hails from the mysterious land of Indiana. His interest in the dark arts was sparked by an “I can read” book called Spooky Tricks. He was inspired to make a career of magic by two things: his love for sharing with audiences the wonder of the impossible and his distaste for honest work. Magic is real!
