Lee Darrow, C.H., D.I.
I was born sometime in the Jurassic Period (that’s the period between math and geography, I am told) and missed being an April fool’s Baby by all of an hour and ten minutes (which a number of my friends dispute, loudly!). I was born in the hospital (because I wanted to be near my mother).

Sex – in favor of it.

Age -for a mayfly, I am incredibly old. For a mountain, I have barely begun. For a man, I am just right. (With apologies to Chiun, the reigning Master of Sinanju).

The “C.H.” after my name means I am a Certified Hypnotist. I am also the author of two eBooks focusing on stage hypnosis safety and other concerns.

I became interested in science fiction at a very early age, having read Heinlein’s “Red Planet” at about age 5. My first convention was the MiniCon just prior to DisCon 2 in D.C. I am a charter member of the Dorsai Irregulars, Ltd. As a magician, I have been a member of the Magic Castle and have performed for a variety of groups. I specialize in close-up magic and mentalism (pseudo-mindreading).

In my mundane life, I chase our rescued house sparrows around the house, Harry, Ariel and their broods along with Mysteria, a Dutch Retriever, whom we rescued last summer. I am also the Technology Sales specialist for every K- 12 school in the United States at Quill.com in Lincolnshire, IL.

However, my greatest accomplishment, supporter and help as a professional in my performance work, as well as helping me become a better human being, is convincing Nanci Ponne’, who is a former Miss Chicago and three-time Gold Medal Winner at ISIA World Championships in figure skating to become my wife.

One warning, I am an incore punster. If you dislike puns, do NOT incorrigible me! If you want the funny version of this, including an eyewitness of the infamous “toe-socks” incident, ask me – or attend the Opening Ceremonies…
