Who is he?
Bill Montana did not come into magic and mentalism via the traditional routes. After working as a charlatan faith healer, Bill spent years working as a professional psychic, something he still does from time to time. Then, 10 years ago, Bill began releasing his methodologies to the magic and mentalism community and they loved it.
Bill Montana is a known designer, creator and fabricator of mentalism and magic effects including special items for crooked gambling.
