Evan became fascinated with magic at the early age of 7 when seeing David Copperfield and other magicians on TV. While visiting Houdini's Magic Shop in Las Vegas several years later a magician outside the magic shop was demonstrating a trick, it struck his attention and thats where it all began. After astonishing spectators' with his first magic trick, he became very fasinated with the art of magic and was eager to learn more. Evan continued to build his repertoire with more intriguing material. After seeing Lance Burton perform at The Monte Carlo in Las Vegas, he was a great inspiration. Since then, Evan Nordhoff has taken his magic to a more serious level. Evan and his girlfriend Bailey, will take you on a thrill ride. He has learned his trade through books, dvds, and communicating with other magicians' around the world. Thanks, Mom & Dad and brothers/sister for the continued support.
