Magician to perform at Stand Still Parade

Fri, May 10th, 2013
Posted in Whalan Arts & Culture

Magician Kristoffer Olson will be dazzling the crowd with his magic at the Stand Still Parade in Whalan on Saturday, at 1pm, May 18th.

Kristoffer Olson has a mind that can fluidly switch between art and science. He can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under two minutes, and has been known to amaze onlookers by instantly memorizing large lists of items backward and forward.

His ability to be both creative and analytical has led to his success running a business in a creative field. This unique skillset is also likely why he began to learn and practice magic at the age of 5, relentlessly curious about learning new things and a natural performer.

Even before graduating from high school, Kristoffer made a name for himself in the world of magic, winning countless awards, including the International Brotherhood of Magicians’ Junior Stage Championship for his unique presentation at the age of 17! At the age of 20, he became one of the youngest members to be inducted into the Magic Circle of London, England, the most prestigious magic organization in the world.

Kristoffer has since graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Theater, and performed full-time for five years. In 2012, he completed an MBA in Marketing Management and Analytics from the University of Saint Thomas full-time program.

Kristoffer was once featured in a documentary by The Learning Channel on life as a magician, and he also performed for Fox Network’s ‘Real TV.’ Kristoffer has traveled tens of thousands of miles performing in Las Vegas to Anchorage to London, though he primarily performs around the Midwest for corporate banquets and company events.

You may also find him on the field at a St. Paul Saints baseball game, where he acts as a sort of ‘human-mascot’ called The Nerd, entertaining the fans with his awkward dance moves, leading the crowd in ridiculous cheers, or hosting contests on the field between innings.
