Arts are not an illusion: Wayne Hoffman

Name: Wayne Hoffman

What is your job?
I'm a professional mentalist & illusionist. That basically means I read people's minds and make things disappear for a living.

What social causes are most important to you?  I'm a huge advocate for the arts. I believe that we need to give kids a chance to get away from their computer screens and experience live theater. There is something magical about sitting in a theater and watching a live performance. It's an experience I believe everyone should have at a young age.
