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! Also, you probably didn't notice "read" and "but" were switched in the sentence above, did you? Magic! Using psychological techniques like the ones above, Hayden will blow you away with mentalism, or magic of the mind.​

About Hayden

Hayden Childress is considered one of the top magicians in the United Federal blah blip yadayada. As you can guess, I am the person who writes, designs, and manages my website and all of my marketing materials, so I could pretty much write anything I wanted about myself. Let’s just cut to the chase.

My name is Hayden and I am a magician.

I perform magic because I love to make the impossible become possible. I find it incredible how the human brain works, and how easily deceived it is through simple psychological principles (and a trap door on the stage). Above all else, I love to entertain. With this in mind, I have made a show that is not only going to fool your pants off (hopefully not literally), but will make you laugh, cry, and make you want to watch more! If there is anything I hate, it is a boring show – I am anything but boring.

As of May 2017, I graduated with a degree in business administration from the University of South Carolina. Using the skills I learned in business school as well as the talents and skills I have developed as a magician, I hope to scale my magic show across the United States and continue making my livelihood solely from performing my show! I love every single day of it.

I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about me and my magic, and I hope I can see you at one of my shows in the near future!
