Peter Wood has been performing magic since the age of five, when he received a magic kit as a birthday present.

1994 was a banner year for Peter: not only did he perform his first paid show (at a birthday party), but Peter also began his magic compnany, at the suggestion of his mother.

Word quickly spread, and the young magician began entertaining families throughout Maryland with his magic and situational comedy. Peter's mom was pressed into service with costuming, while his dad acted as a chauffer for the young magician.

In middle school, Peter was asked to perform at a trade show, creating customized routines to convey a message. This sparked his corporate market clientle, which Peter maintains concurrent to his family party performances. Access to his father's well-equipped workshop led Peter to construct much of his equipment from scratch, initially as a matter of economy. Over the years, his custom-made props have set him apart from other entertainers, and Peter's clients look forward to new and unique magic when they invite him to their event.

Throughout high school and college, Peter continued performing magic professionally. After graduating from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County with a degree in Technical Theatre, Peter decided to pursue magic as his full-time career.

Today, he is invited to entertain at private parties for families and organizations. Top companies such as Frito-Lay, Toys R Us, and USA Today rely on Peter for entertianment, as do government organizations including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Marine Corps. Peter is a member and past local president of the Society of American Magicians, a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and a lifetime member of the International Magician's Society.
