I remember the first magic trick I ever learned. It was a little trick with a coin and, I cannot tell you how many times I performed that trick over and over for the same people. I fell in love with magic and the art of misdirection. Starting at 7 years old I played around with magic off and on until I was 15.
Then I had the opportunity to see a professional and it turned my love for magic into a passion. Quickly this passion became an obsession. At 15 I began performing publicly starting at my school. I remember going to random tables in the cafeteria doing tricks just waiting for people to forget reality. I began falling in love with the art of taking an audience, and making them feel like anything is possible.
My love for illusions has continued growing and has afforded me the opportunity to perform for both secular and faith based venues including company parties, school gatherings, church and youth group events, festivals, dinners, weddings, coffeehouses, restaurants and even overnight retreats. I love performing for all types of venues, but my passion is getting the opportunity to use this gift God has given me to share what He has radically done in my life. I love getting the privilege to share this passion to bring glory to Christ.
“Zach Wilke is the most talented young illusionist I have ever seen. The reviews from numerous people of all ages who saw Zach perform for the first time, kept asking me when he was coming back. His sense of humor assists him in capturing the attention of the audience and holding it for the duration of an illusion. If you decide to bring Zach in for your event, you will find he is easy to work with, will treat you with respect, and is a spiritually mature young man who loves to share what Jesus has done for him.”
