I’m a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and the originator of improvised illusion, a method of performing stage illusions for a live audience without practice, preparation, or rehearsal. Performing as The (Sort of) Amazing AJ, I’ve used my unique blend of magic, rhetoric, and storytelling to bring together something truly original, unforgettable, and often hilarious.

But don’t take my word for it! Grand Rapids’ only weekly variety comedy show, Comedy Outlet Mondays named “The (Sort of) Amazing AJ” their Solo Comedy Performer of the Year for 2019.

I frequently perform at The Comedy Project in Grand Rapids, Michigan but my magic has been performed on many comedy and improv stages in Michigan, Massachusetts, and Maryland. No one knows why “The (Sort of) Amazing AJ” favors performances in states that start with the letter “m”, but that’s good news for Minnesota and Maine.
