In the early 1980s, Kozmo worked at Cornell University as a broadcast engineer. He found himself unhappy in his career, discovering there was no passion in what he was doing and felt he needed a change.
On a whim he decided to try his luck making some extra cash performing card tricks at a street festival. He made out like a bandit and raked in nearly two thousand dollars in three days.
Shortly after, he took a four day road trip from New York to New Orleans to meet the legendary street magician, Cellini, who happily took Kozmo under his wing, and trained him in the late 1990s through 2003.
With Cellini’s help, Kozmo acquired deep knowledge in the art of busking. A master in his field, he remains one of the top street magicians in the world.
In 2006, he started a company called "Kozmo Magic," which is recognized as one of today's premier magic video production companies.
A year later, he launched "Reel magic Magazine", a conjuring magazine sold in video format. "Reel Magic Magazine" continues to be the benchmark in the video magic industry.
