Considered an expert of Faro Shuffle techniques, he was a member of IBM Ring 23 in Cleveland, Ohio and held I.B.M. number 18948.
He was an expert worker in metal and turned his own coin boxes. He also collected brass magic, especially from Carl Brema.
Many of his routines were published in Bill Miesel's Precursor magazine.
Cervas created "Hexaflexagon" with a story about stained glass windows, and a version of the Endless Chain.
