Beyond: A Magical Journey. Join magician Jeff Quinn as he discusses what it takes to go beyond the limits and make the impossible possible. From a very young age, Jeff was faced with obstacles that made it very unlikely that he would wind up as a successful entertainer. For the last decade he’s been performing between 300 and 350 shows per year and has accomplished some remarkable achievements in the world of magic. This presentation promises to be both amazing and inspiring.
