Born in San Francisco, David Gabbay moved to Los Angeles many years ago and made his home near the famed Magic Castle where he is a regular performer. He talks extensively about The Castle, some of his favorite magicians who perform at the Castle. He also talks about what he looks for in the climax of his tricks, his mentor (George Millward), his experience of seeing his first magic show, recording your performance, and the importance of paying attention to details in your performance. David is very good at taking commonly performed effects (such as Three Fly, Ramsay's Cylinder and Coins, etc.) and putting his own touches and additions that make it uniquely personalized to him.
