Born and raised in Hollywood, California, Doug Malloy began his magic career at an early age. By the time he was twenty he was creating his own magic, touring throughout the US and Japan. After years of travel, Doug decided to combine his experience as a seasoned pro with his talented craftsmanship. He started up Malloy Modern Magic to create elite magic props for the most illustrious magicians. It was through this venture that Doug first attracted Criss Angel’s interest. Doug has a much sought-after understanding of how to construct magic that will withhold the test of real-world situations. After consulting on the first three seasons of MINDFREAK, Criss brought Doug to Las Vegas in 2007 to consult and fabricate new illusions full time. Doug has since worked on the last three seasons of MINDFREAK, as well as Criss’ live show Believe at the Luxor.
