Magician Steve Peterson has been performing his Minor Miracles and Mirthful Magical Mysteries for over 60 years as a part-time professional, appearing at fairs, corporate events, and private parties. He was introduced to magic at the age of 14, when Edwin Brush (Brush the Great) performed at his church. When Mr. Brush was told that Steve was interested in becoming a magician, He directed Steve to the Golden Gate Magic Company in San Francisco. There Steve met other performers and hobbist, and began collecting magic tricks, magic books, and the Tarbell Course in Magic. The Tarbell Course really inspired him, and set him on this journey!

 Since retiring from his 34 year career at Hewlett-Packard in May of 2000, he is now performing as a full-time professional magician. He offers a variety of magical performances, from sleight-of-hand acts for stage or parlor, to strolling close-up magic and comedy kid shows.

 Steve especially enjoys performing for youngsters, and making grown-ups feel like kids again!
