Peter Samelson was one of performers and lecturers at the Texas Association of Magicians (T.A.O.M.) convention in Austin, Texas. I have always admired his thinking and perspective of magic. He takes the art of magic very seriously as evidenced by his performance that shows thoughtful scripting, professional choreography and impeccable timing.
During our discussion, Peter talks about his life's journey that led him to creating theatrical effects that resonate with his audience. He talks about the twists he puts on some classics that not only make them "his" but also makes his performance of that effect memorable to his audience.
