“I cannot believe the change in my son from the bullied, introverted, angry little boy who entered at the
​age of 12, to the amazing,
​outgoing, engaging, confident
​and well spoken young man with bright dreams for his future we have today.  Thank you Arlen, Eric,
​the S.Y.M. and the ​S.A.M. for all you and the ​magic community have done and ​continue to do for Evan.”

Evan the Magician
