Name: Bruce Smith

Resides: Denver, Colorado, USA

Occupation: Sales Consumer Electronics

Years in Magic: Over 30+ years, started as a child in the 70’s. Like others I have left the hobby and have returned many times throughout my life, most recently a year ago… that is when I caught Cup Fever.

First set of real Cups: RNT Monti Aluminum Combo Cups, 1978-79 I paid $29.

Magic Status: Serious hobbyist, dreams of opening a brick and mortar magic shop.

Magic Interests: Close-up Magic and Magic History… seriously afraid of clowns (have learned to cope with Mad Jake).  (Ed note: The technical term for this is "Coulrophobia" and I can help with it Bruce!)

Other Interests: Music, High Performance Stereo Systems, I love Jazz Trios. I love music but can’t play an instrument, but I can play a stereo.

Thanks Bruce!
