Bay City Western High School senior Cameron Zvara has been interested in magic since an early age.  He got his 1st magic kit while he was in pre-school and hasn't looked back yet.  His fascination with magic was to learn how things work during the magic act and then see how people reacted to the tricks.  Cameron also became active in the arts by joining the Bay City Players when he was 10 years old.   He would receive training from some of the best directors and actors in the Great Lakes Bay region.

Cameron stated: "I got the bug for magic from watching the late magician Mark Bellinger perform his act."   Cameron now has been performing magic on his own since the age of 12 before many kinds of audiences around the state of Michigan.   Zvara has researched and looked at some of the most famous magicians of all time including Harry Houdini.   He was quick to list some of the more famous magicians that he has already met in his short time performing magic:  Dan Harlan, Gene Anderson, Stephen Bargatze and the great Aldo Columbini from Italy are a few that he has met.  
During his performances that last anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour, Cameron can be seen performing balloon tricks and magic acts to keep the crowds entertained.   He now performs on a regular basis on Wednesday evening in Bay City at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wilder road from 6:00p.m. till 8:00p.m.   Cameron can be hired to perform at your private function or birthday celebration by going to his website to contact him at   
Cameron was the recent opening act for the Detroit Tiger caravan that made a stop in Saginaw at the Temple Theater in January.   He has also performed at many corporate functions throughout the Great Lakes Bay region.   The highlight of Cameron's young career to date would be the 10-day trek that he made to the Dominican Republic with a group of doctors on a mission trip.  Cameron would bring some light into the eyes of the young struggling kids with his balloon acts and magic performances. 
Cameron was also recently awarded a prestige award for a High School student in nationwide competition from the National Federation of Independent Businesses.   He won Michigan's Young Entrepreneur Award, which went to only two students.  
It is obvious that this young magician is very passionate about the craft that he has chosen to make a lifelong profession.
