The Amazing Scott; making magic & Balloons since 2000
As a young child, Scott remembers seeing David Copperfield perform on t.v. being convinced then and there that magic really was out there. That day when he first checked out his first magic and balloon book over 25 years ago , Scott knew he was instantly hooked. What he began has turned into a lifetime pursuit; finding ways to take the mundane and imbue it with magic.
25 years later, that magic is still alive and thriving within Scott. Chasing down his dream has led him to many an international balloon convention, to become both a Certified Balloon Artist (CBA: having extensive training in professional balloon artistry) and a Qualatex Balloon Network (QBN) member, and to become the winner of multiple international awards for balloon twisting including being the leader of Team U.S.A..
Scott started doing balloons when he was 12. After seeing David Copperfield on tv, he was convinced there was real magic out there, and he was determined to learn how to do it! The next day at school, scott checked out his first book on magic that had balloons in the back. He was instantly hooked.
Fast-forward 25 years and now I’m a Certified Balloon Artist (CBA) with extensive training in professional balloon artistry, a member of the Qualatex Balloon Network (QBN), a participant at many international balloon conventions, and a winner of multiple international awards for balloon twisting. What started as a simple hobby has turned into my life’s passion!
