As a young boy Vinny’s father took a wrinkled silk pocket square out of a dusty old shoebox, rolled his sleeves up and tucked it down into his closed fist and in the blink of an eye, the silk vanished! That’s all it took. A simple conjuror’s trick convinced Vinny that a life of legerdemain was where he belonged. Unbeknownst to Vinny the shoebox of magic, which he was now obsessed with, was his late grandfathers, who learned sleight of hand to entertain his comrades during the war. He was delighted to learn that conjuring was in his blood.
