Magician and Certified Sommelier
Ben Silver has been in the restaurant and hospitality industry for over 20 years and has worked at numerous fine dining restaurants and luxury resorts. His interest in magic spawned as a kid. He was always performing around the dinner table for his parents and their friends. Magic was always an interest and part of Ben’s life but his first passion was Art. Ben painted since he was a child, and it was Art that finally reconnected him back into magic. It was at one of Ben Silver’s own art shows in his early twenties that the gallery hired a magician(Sebastian) to entertain. It was that night watching the feats of impossibility and the joy of the spectators that Ben decided to take his interest in magic from hobby to another level. Coincidentally around the same time while Ben was working in a San Diego restaurant he met and was again inspired by another magician (Nick Ivory) who was hired to perform during the restaurant’s Sunday brunches. Ben saw the career opportunities that magic could offer and he continued his studies of legerdemain.
