"I've been an I.B.M. member since I was 13 years old. The organization has given me a foundation of knowledge, training, and encouragement that has been absolutely crucial to my development as a magician. I would not be where I am today without everything that I have learned. I give membership with the I.B.M. my highest recommendation."
