Jared began his love of the art of magic at the very early age of eight years old. Holiday ‘Magic Shows’ for the family became a tradition at the Sherlocks’. What was considered a hobby, with the invaluable help of his parents; family and friends, very quickly became a profession by the age of thirteen.
Every full-scale production produced by Jared’s company in the past 8 years has been in cooperation with a charity or benefit in pursuit of feeding, clothing, educating and granting the last wishes of kids. Your attendance has helped raise over $75,000 dollars for central Indiana and Minnesota communities!
