Want to see a free mind-reading trick? Whatever you do, DON'T read this sentence. Amazing isn't it? You couldn't but help read but the sentence!

About Hayden

*Switches to first person*

Hi there,

My name is Hayden Childress, and I am a magician and mentalist based in New York City.

I have had a passion for performing magic for as long as I can remember. Magic is one of the most powerful art forms because it reminds us that there is so much more wonder and amazement in the world than what meets the eye. I think the world can be cynical and unforgiving – but magic helps us see wonder and potential in the world because there is so much we still don’t know.

I am fortunate enough to perform across North America every single week. Most of the shows I do are for corporate events, theaters, clubs, and college campuses. 

If you are in NYC, you can see me most weekends at Speakeasy Magick at the Mckittrick Hotel. I also tour to other cities, and you can get tickets to see me here.

Whether you are hiring me for an event or buying a ticket to a show in your city, I hope you enjoy the show!
