Troy Von Scheibner

Self

Troy, born Johannes Troy Von Scheibner, is not your average magician. His tattoos, gold watch and collection of bright snapback caps distinguish this Magic Circle member from the rest.

Troy's interest in magic began at the age of 12 after he saw David Blaine on television. As a child, Troy was very shy and credits magic with helping him to break out of his shell. His father, an actor, writer and archeologist, nurtured Troy's interest in magic and bought him an instructional magicians video tape, which Troy used for practice. While in college, Troy continued to hone his magic skills by working at bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings and restaurants.

During one of his late night shifts as a waiter, Troy did an impromptu magic show for table of customers, which included an important production executive. This chance meeting turned Troy's dreams of being a full-time magician into a reality. Although he's only in his early 20s, Troy has already achieved much success in his career thus far and has no plans on slowing down.
