Now a seasoned professional, he has been featured on more than thirty television specials, including all major U.S. television networks. His touring shows have taken him throughout China, Japan, South-East Asia, Australia, USA, and many parts of Europe.
Now a seasoned professional, he has been featured on more than thirty television specials, including all major U.S. television networks.

Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood hosted over 100 of Greg’s “Mysteries of Magic” Grand Illusion performances to capacity crowds, setting new records for the historic venue in 2013. The next year Greg was brought back for his “The Golden Age of Magic” spectacular production with over 160 performances. Greg was further honored by Disney by including his show on their “wall of fame” photo collection!
Last year, Greg combined his background in film production with magic to create a film to life magically interactive show that was featured before each screening of “Tomorrowland” at the El Capitan Theatre. Once again presenting an all new production for the Disney audiences.
Greg’s consulting work on features and television productions is his invisible magic. From sitcoms (The Goldbergs), to detective and dramatic series (CSI, Criminal Minds, Pretty Little Liars, Shield, etc.), and more, Greg is brought back because of his ability to teach quickly, help keep production time to a minimum, and make the artists look like pros. It all comes from Greg’s growing up in the magic world. He had to learn how to do it all for his television appearances.
Renowned artist, Diana Thater had Greg present the legendary “Rabbit from a Hat” trick for her moving image art exhibit. Greg produced the bunny over 50 times as she shot it from multiple angles, never revealing the secret. The exhibit toured the US from LA to New York, and then off to London for her gallery showing.
