About Us

Hi, we’re Dan and Dave Buck, twin brothers, business partners, and good friends.

We were born in 1984 and raised in Northern California. In our youth, when we weren't on the slopes snowboarding or hiking through Yosemite, we practiced sleight of hand magic and pioneered the art of cardistry. We didn’t know it at the time, but we helped create an international movement and one of the most exciting and growing skill arts today.

Over the years we published many videos for learning card tricks, and these lessons, along with others we've produced, may be viewed on Art of Magic. Our unique style is recognized around the world and continues to inspire new generations of magicians.

In 2013 we founded Art of Play, a wonder emporium of sorts offering a collection of playing cards, puzzles, games, toys and home goods.

When not pursuing our entrepreneurial drive, we love being outdoors. We’re proud members of 1% for the Planet, and support non-profit organizations to plant trees from California to Indonesia.
