Sterlini’s love of magic began at the age of four when his mother bought him a Magic Water Vase. The rest, as they say, is history.
At 12, Sterlini began performing professionally and went on to become one of the few graduates of the Chavez College of Prestidigitation (one of two such schools in the world). Today, Sterlini’s intense and skilled performances show off the advanced sleight of hand and showmanship abilities he learned there.
After college, Sterlini’s dove act won First Place status at Michigan Magic Day, the Glass City Conjurer’s Conclave, and Abbott’s magic competitions.
His impressive acts moved on to entertain the magicians themselves, strutting his stuff on stage for conventions in “the magic capital of the world,” Colon Michigan, for Abbott’s Annual Magic Get Together, Magi-Fest convention in Columbus, Ohio, Chicago’s Masters of Magic and in New York for Tannen’s Magic Jubilee.
October of 1995, Sterlini mystified 80,000 fans at a sold out Detroit Lions football game, when he introduced his “explosive” Lion Metamorphosis on the 50 yard line during the pre-game show against the San Francisco 49ers.
Throughout his career, Sterlini has performed for large audiences, but never so many until he thrilled millions over the airwaves on the Arsenio Hall and Jerry Springer shows.
And most recently, Sterlini acquired Grand Illusion, one of the mid west’s largest illusion programs, featuring classic as well as original stage illusions.
