“To the audience, magic is an illusion. To the performer, magic is a reality.” – Richard Ross
Witness the spellbinding stage magic of the world’s only three-time FISM winner. He needs no bravado to mesmerize spectators. His cool elegance and exacting skill enchant thousands who see him yearly.
To some, Richard’s rapid ascendency to magic’s forefront bespeaks a quintessential fairy tale. Born in a country known for its rich breeding ground of magic talent, Richard began working at age 16 in an Amsterdam magic shop. When he entered and won his first FISM competition, he’d never performed on stage. Yet natural ability and consuming perfectionism provided the springboard for his accomplishments. Today his contributions to the magic fraternity are held in highest regard.
