By the time he turned 14, Reza was landing significant gigs performing for resorts and large corporations across the Midwest. On his 15th birthday Reza left his hometown to perform a six-week run in Branson, Mo., the live entertainment capital of the world.

After Branson, one opportunity led into the next and as the doors began to open, Reza’s style took on a fresh and cutting-edge feel. With a largely original show and an engaging stage presence, Reza began selling out theaters as the entertainment world took notice, with his mind set on changing the world’s perception of magic.
