He blends refined sleight of hand with sophisticated psychological techniques to deliver an unforgettable experience of wonder and astonishment. "Certainly there are ideas and laughs in the show, but really I am trying to transmit a very specific feeling to the people in the audience. To experience a deep sense of wonder for a moment that's a very special thing."

This gift of mystery and humor keeps Eric Mead very busy. He presents over 200 shows each year, ranging from corporate events, to private parties, to theatrical, and television appearances. He has enthralled audiences all across America and Western Europe. From the private living rooms of Jack Nicholson, Kevin Costner, and Hugh Hefner, to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Philip Morris, and Bristol-Meyers Squibb, he is at home in almost any venue, in front of any audience.

In addition to his performing schedule, Mr. Mead is an accomplished writer and creator of custom presentations. He has written or contributed to 18 industrial and instructional films. When the Denver Museum of Nature and Science wanted to do a live action exhibit called, Life on Mars, they turned to Eric Mead to create and develop the special effects required.
