Brian Flora ("Professor Flora") was a well-known magician in Albuquerque, performing in restaurants, schools, and private parties. His business, Flora and Company, was supplier of marketing materials for magicians, mentalists and family entertainers.


For several years, Flora conducted an annual Magic Marketing Conference starting in 1990.

In his later years, he turned his interest in sideshows and carnivals into a new business, manufacturing handcranked pipe organs.[1]

Flora wrote frequently for Genii and other magazines on such columns as "Magic on Tape", "New Magic Media", and "Magic on TV and Film".
