Under Tom’s mentorship, Matthew was twice elected President of IBM Ring 189, and twice named magician of the year. After moving to West Virginia in early 2000, Matthew became the resident magician for the Bristol Broadcasting Company's cluster of radio stations. He provided close up and strolling magic at station events, listener parties, and live broadcast. He also entertained musicians, and NASCAR drivers who came to town for station events and concerts.
