About Dennis Vander Houwen
I am a full time comedy magician who performs magic in restaurants and for public and private events. My other work includes working as a communications educator at the University of Colorado. I tea...ch medical students communication skills and have a passion for understanding effective communication. For fun I enjoy Tenkara fly fishing, playing my ukulele, camping , hiking, and hanging out with my son and wife. I love bow ties, embrace a lifestyle of simplicity and minimalism, drink great coffee, am somewhat of a beer snob, enjoy a good scotch and nice night out under the stars. Recently I started a cottage business making artisan magic wands for magicians and wizarding folk. I enjoy do it your self projects and love making my own things. I like to write, have a blog and one published magazine article under my belt. I am a veteran of the Gulf War where I was a combat photographer. I now mostly take pictures of fish, wildlife, landscapes and family. show moreOpen to other proposals
