Thank You James Randi

My mentor and dear friend James Randi passed away last week.

I haven't known what to say, so I've said very little so far, but I wanted to simply express my deepest thanks to him for being such a big part of my life.

Most of the world knows him as a fierce warrior against flimflam and tomfoolery.

To me he was that and one of the kindest, most thoughtful, and considerate people I've ever had the honor of knowing for nearly 20 years.

We spent untold days together talking about magic, showmanship, timing, comedy, being famous, life, and relationships in general.

I plan on sharing as many of the stories I can remember so others can see him as the friend and mentor that he was to me.

For now, if you're unfamiliar with his work, know that the NYTimes wrote an obituary for him and there's a whole documentary about his life on Netflix.

Check those out and you'll begin to understand what a giant of man he was.

Thank you Randi for all your work.
