Biography

Ferris' interest in magic began when he tried to elaborate on some of the simple sleight-of-hand shown to him by his father. He likes to use magic as a sales "tool" and feels that magic can be instrumental in creating an interesting and unique aura.[2]

As a teenager he drew 140 illustrations and created 40 effects for the two one man parades in the Linking Ring Magazine (January, 1969 and May, 1970.)
