Stryker knows what you’re thinking. No, really, he does. It’s his job. You’re thinking, who is this guy? And what’s the story with his awesome name? Truth is, some people call him David and some people call him Stryker. Those who have seen him perform, like actor Chris Pine, call him incredible.
A former student of renowned sleight-of-hand expert John Guastaferro, David Stryker began creating original magic and performing at restaurants and parties while still in middle school. As a teenager, Stryker received recognition as an award-winning member of the world-famous Magic Castle, and went on to become one of the youngest headliners in the club’s history. To date, Stryker’s Magic Castle performances number in the hundreds, and he has since performed around the globe.
From Hong Kong to Paris, from Sun Valley to New York City, Stryker’s jaw-dropping magic and mentalism have dazzled audiences at an array of impressive events. Stryker has been a featured performer at the famous Allen & Company Business Convention, annual meeting place of luminaries such as Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Oprah Winfrey, and he has privately entertained celebrities like Chris Pine, Jason Alexander, Charlie Sheen, Lizzy Caplan, Ike Barinholtz, and many others.
Always creating, always refining, Stryker has been featured in MAGIC Magazine where he was lauded a “master of his craft.” His television credits include FOX’s Boston Public and his corporate client list includes Amazon, Disney, Ipsos, Guthy-Renker, and Netflix.
Away from magic, Stryker holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Whittier College and enjoys playing the ukulele, yoga, and travel.
