Max Maven

MAX MAVEN who legally changed his name from Philip Goldstein, is an American magician and mentalist. While his public persona and performances fall squarely within the genre of mentalism, Maven's contributions to the magic community span far wider. He is respected within the industry for being a prolific author, and innovating many of the magical and mentalist effects that are used by other magicians. He has been a magic consultant for such performers as David Copperfield, Penn & Teller, Siegfried & Roy, and Doug Henning, and is a frequent contributor to industry journals such as GeniiThe Linking Ring, and MUM.
