Highly recommended!”

But things haven’t always gone so smoothly for Sam. In 2005, while a practicing magician, Sam began to experience the initial stages of a genetic disease called “Progressive Hearing Loss.” By 2009, what had first presented as difficulty clearly hearing voices and background noises had developed into complete bilateral deafness. Sam had transitioned into a world of utter silence. It was a difficult reality to accept, but instead of letting it destroy him, Sam chose to turn his situation over to God. He knew that the world‘s illusion of hopelessness concerning his hearing loss was not the truth. Sam chose instead to listen to God, knowing that through faith in Him, The Lord would turn this stumbling block into a stepping stone.

Moving forward, Sam redoubled his efforts and retooled his act to accommodate his auditory situation and created a new innovative show called ‘DEAFinitely Magic,’ delivering a powerful message of dynamic inspiration. In 2014, Sam set out on his first national tour across America racking up over 360 shows in 39 states!


Today, his unique blend of magic with a message has allowed him to be a featured speaker in thousands of  schools, universities, churches, and corporations, and many other events in thousands of cities across America. Whether gracing a large stage with thousands in attendance or smaller intimate settings, Sam finds a way to pierce the heart and evoke a desire to discover that the magic to succeed is already inside each and every one of you.

Sam’s inspirational story has led him to be featured in an article in the “Linking Ring,” the official magazine for the International Brother Hood of Magicians and in Genii magazine (the largest magic magazine in the world as well as numerous books, magazines and newspapers.

“The way Sam uses his loss of hearing as a tool for motivation and encouragement is breathtaking and heartwarming. You do not see a defeated victim. Instead you see a confident and loving spokesperson that uses his life as an inspiration for others.”

Whether you are looking for a fun night of magic and fun or have an audience you want to inspire Sam can create that magic and wonder.

Sam looks forward to personally speaking with you about your next event so that he can better understand what you want to accomplish and then he will boggle your mind, inspire your students, make you laugh out loud till it hurts or all of the above with his spectacular fun show.


Thanks again for an amazing performance!  My guests and I were thrilled with your show! If you ever need a reference, please let me know.
