David Reed-Brown knows youth. Since the mid-80s he has spent more than a year of his life leading summer camp programs and building trips for youth. He enjoys sharing inspiring, encouraging and challenging stories around the proverbial campfire with magic in countless schools, camps, congregations, community organizations and at businesses.
David's stories come from his experiences of learning from people of very diverse backgrounds. He has traveled the world encountering amazing people from Ground Zero in 2001 New York City to post-Katrina Biloxi, Mississippi to the barren Nevada Desert to Johannesburg, South Africa to Europe to the Indian Himalaya to the location of Mother Theresa's work in Calcutta to the impoverished back country of Costa Rica—all to work alongside others in compassion and mutual friendship.
As a church pastor for twenty-five years, David Reed-Brown specializes in conveying compelling and meaningful messages through visual theatrical magic, delighting audiences of every age. While his magic is very fine and "blows the minds" of youth around the country, he is not a magician who just tacked a message onto his show. He is not a speaker who just learned a little magic. David combines deep understanding with a passion for magic as a performing art to create a unique presentation that engages, informs, and persuades audiences with a message customized to your needs.
Uplifting and engaging, David's true to life stories help youth face their fears, challenge their assumptions, trust themselves, and overcome their challenges.
