The 2005 Washington High School graduate and son of Dr. Stephen and Sharon Cullen has been performing magic for 12 years Ñ since age 14 when he did walk-around performances.
“I did my first corporate show when I was 17,” he said, explaining he made the leap to mentalism and now books himself as mind reader. “My first theater show was when I was 19.”
He met Munroe at a magic conference in Las Vegas in 2008 before Munroe was diagnosed with cancer. Once Munroe was cancer free and performing again, he contacted Cullen to make guest appearances in his show. That was in 2010.
At a show at University of Southern California, the director couldn’t make it, so Cullen filled in. It turned out he has a knack for it and now directs the Maze shows full time.
He still performs his own shows when he has free time from Maze, and currently has two new shows he’s working on: a mind-reading show and a sŽance show. Though he’s on the road much of the time, he still calls Washington home and recently did an hour-long, impromptu show at Knepp’s after dinner one evening.
“I’m open to doing corporate stuff and shows at schools when I’m not working on Maze,” Cullen said.
