It's All About Promotion, so I'm Told...
Alright...I have to come clean....I have been asked to preform some magic and stuff at a Valentine Party at a major local church...it is actually for a "Marriage Class." I use to perform all the time...but now....only when I really want to...and this time...I wanted to. So the person pulling this thing together wanted a promotion package...ie. a head shot and some bio info. This is what I came up with...all true...for the most part. :-)
Dave Elliott has the rare distinction of being the only person featured on episodes of both T.V. shows, “America’s Most Wanted” and “Hoarders.” In college he began to learn the fine art of “slight of hand”…but don’t tell his momma…she thinks he studied really hard to get that Engineering degree from Texas A&M. The best trick he ever performed was getting his college sweetheart to marry him….or maybe she just lost a bet and had to…either way, Dave won. This 5th generation Texan, born and raised on the South Plains, has issues that would cause a whole team of psychiatrists to scratch their heads. He runs all night long sometimes…and cycles long distances…just because. This father of 4…has been a preacher, a rocket scientist, an engineer, a Marine, a Cubmaster, a commission salesman, an endurance athlete, a writer, an award winning magician and a joker….but he is most proud being a husband and father. And that stuff about being on “America’s Most Wanted” and “Hoarders”….ok…that was a lie…but there are a lot of people looking for him…mainly because he owes them a lot of money….
