Hailed by critics as the Nation’s Top Touring Illusionist, Reza has sold out venues from coast to coast, as well as being featured on television and radio in 31 countries around the world.
As reported on his website (rezalive.come), his focus in the art began at the early age of 7 after being inspired by a magic show in his hometown of Brookings, South Dakota. By the age of 14, Reza was landing significant gigs performing for resorts and large corporations across the Midwest. Today he is one of the fastest rising stars in the industry, with his mind set on changing the world’s perception of magic.
Reza is described as intriguing, engaging and captivating, with the ability to connect with his audiences and let them feel his magic on a personal level. “He isn’t just a magician. He is an entertainer.”
