Identical twins Dan and Dave Buck were first inspired to pursue magic and card-istry when they saw David Copperfield's grand illusions as kids. Growing up in Sonora, California, where they say there was little else to do, they practiced eight to ten hours a day while in high school. In 2001, they founded Dan & Dave, which started with a single homemade instructional videotape and has grown to include hundreds of books, videos, playing cards, and essential accessories for magicians.
