Richard Kwesell was a born performer in Chi-Town--Chicago, Illinois. Kwesell's recognition for his talents won him a scholarship to pursue both the fine arts and the performing arts in Israel. Richard spent the next fifteen months in the college of life, traveling through 11 countries in the Middle East and later into South America, studying the mysteries of sleight-of-hand and sleight-of-mind.
