When Burns was 12 a magic shop opened near his hometown of Johnstown, Pa. Burns would show up every week and come home with new tricks to try out on his family, friends and anyone else who would watch. After his first gig at a birthday party, Burns was hooked on performing and eventually decided to pursue a career in showbiz.
In 2000 he began college at Millersville University, where his act began to break away from traditional magician's tricks, and he began to experiment with other skills including juggling, stand-up comedy, contortionism and sideshow stunts.
After graduating he began his career as a full-time performer. Since then his talents have taken him to stages across the United States and to festivals in Canada, China, and New Zealand. He spends most of the year touring colleges and universities, and his summers are spent performing at festivals and events around the globe.
