Sharing my joys and passions from the stage, and seeing it reflected back in my audience's eyes is what fuels me.
I started my performing career at the age of 13. I started off doing magic shows for birthday parties, summer camps, libraries, and at the local zoo. As I got older, and better, I started performing at bars, restaurants, corporate parties and Universities.
During college at the University of Texas, I worked with touring illusionists CJ Johnson and Brian Brushwood as their traveling tech help. Once I graduated, CJ approached me and asked if I would like to help him start a Game Show business. Who could say no to that opportunity :)
The Magic and Game Show business has taken me all around the world. I've gotten to perform in Las Vegas, on Cruise Ships, at Casinos, on TV and for Hollywood stars. I am excited because my journey is just getting started. I look forward to each day as an adventure as I make my way through this amazing life.
Here is a fun video of a magic show. Check it out!
"Brain Cell last night was amazing! As always, Game Shows To Go was a pleasure to work with. Gus is an amazing host who knows our students well. LaGrange College has now officially had every game show that you all offer on campus, and we are excited to start the rotation again next year. These events are always a great addition to our welcome week schedule."

"The show was amazing. The students really enjoyed it. Gus always cracks me up and he did a great job engaging the students and keeping them interested. He and Cory were very professional in the set up and take down and the set for the show was top notch. It was a great show!"
-Angie Totty - Arkansas State University - Beebe
"The show (Beat the Banker) was an absolute hit! As always, Gus and his partner did a terrific job with the event and the crowd. We have had the pleasure of having Gus as our entertainer for three years and look forward to having him at a fourth."
Lisa McGregor, Republic Paperboard
As a professional entertainer I have seen thousands of magic acts throughout my career, most of them very unoriginal. I am happy to say that Gus is an exception to that rule. I am constantly "blown away" by this entertainer's energy and versatility. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. "
Ian Varella - Comedy Ventriloquist
"Gus may be my favorite Austin entertainer. I've known him since he was too young to drive, and he just keeps getting better and better (as an entertainer...I don't really know about his driving!)"
Kent Cummins, Magic Camp Director
"Gus made this sales dinner one everyone will remember. He is not just an extremely talented magician, but a true entertainer with class. He very unobtrusively became a part of our group and had the guests in awe and anxiously waiting until he came back their way. I would love to have him entertain our group again. Everyone is still talking about it!"
Renee Lyles, Marketing Coordinator for Centex Homes
"It was a great pleasure to have Gus here to share his magic with the educators who have received our Texas Exes Award for Outstanding Teachers. His presence was visible evidence of the importance he places on what they are doing. They loved it!
Again, our sincere thanks to Gus for making time to be with us. His investment of time will be returned many times over in the classrooms across Texas."
Jim Boon, Executive Director, Texas Exes
"Gus is that rare performer who is truly in touch with his audiences and who always is "in the moment of the show"; not just mindlessly performing routines. Gus uses his unique style, grace, poise, energy and his total "cool under fire" in a variety of different entertainment situations, which makes him a chameleon when it comes to entertaining."
C.J. Johnson, Illusionist, Producer, Hypnotist, Speaker
"Gus -- we have to say "thanks" one more time!!!! Your skill/magic and charm entertained and pleased everyone."

"Wow! You were a hit during Sammy's Bar mitzvahcelebration. Thank you so much forentertaining us during such a special occasion. Sammy had the best time ever”!
J. Melnick - Bar Mitzvah
My Magic Shows
I have 3 types of magic performances that I am very proud of.
Lounge Act: 45 minutes of Comedy, Magic, and Illusion for the corporate / office party.
Strolling Magic: Hourly "street" magic performed table side or for small groups. This is powerful entertainment that happens in your guest's hands. It is also a way to ensure your party guests are never bored or feeling left out.
Family Shows: I am a proud father of an elementary school student. I have put together a family program that is magical, funny, educational, and appropriate for ages 5-105.
No matter what your event, we have a game show and a production level for you. Nothing we do is homegrown. All our shows are tightly scripted with great production value to exceed all expectations.
Whether you are just looking for a fun show, or you are looking to anchor your weekend corporate retreat with a show to see how much your attendees learned, or if you are looking to have the coolest trade show booth at the convention, we got you covered!
