The Great Charlini has been magically delighting and entertaining audiences for over 20 years. He grew up in Westchester County, New York and started performing magic professionally in high school after attending Tannen's Magic Camp. He then went on to apprentice at a local magic shop where he cultivated his craft. During and after college he performed magic and participated in theater festivals all over the world, including Japan, South Korea, Venezuela, Germany, Monaco and Ireland.

In recent years, some of Charlini's public appearances have included the Yorktown Grange Fair, Eastchester County Club, the Pleasantville Farmers' Market, and many schools and libraries. In 2011, Charlini created an interactive Pirate Show for children and toured the city of White Plains' public parks. The show was sponsored by the Fort Hill Players and New York State Council of the Arts. He is also currently involved in teaching magic classes and workshops.

He is a proud member of the Society of American Magicians as well as the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
