John Born

Magic Performer John Born

John Born has spent the last 14 years of his life at the forefront of creativity and education in the magical arts, creating custom presentations for schools, corporations, and magicians worldwide. He is the winner of several prestigious awards, the most notable being first place in the 2006 International Brotherhood of Magicians Gold Cups Competition (the most prestigious annual competition for close-up magic in the world). He is the author of two best-selling educational books, and is featured on over ten instructional DVDs.

In 1995, a tragic car accident shattered his potential for a career as a professional athlete. Little did he know, this turn of events (combined with a little inspiration from his grandfather) would spur a life-long passion and incredible career in performance and education. John uses his talents, creativity, and story to really show that if you put your mind to it, you can do anything!

Albert Einstein once said "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science.” John’s presentation demonstrates the power of wonder to share important messages in a way that will entertain, educate, and inspire!

“We proudly recommend John Born for any magic shows your organization would be considering. John is a very professional, reliable, and entertaining magical artist. Our students and faculty were so impressed; we had to bring him back twice to perform magic for our school!!! In both cases he has come well-prepared and has incorporated the messages of our assemblies into his performances!" - Linda Imbler / Assitant Principal at Minneha
