Please join me in welcoming David Kwong for a Cake Panel today! A bit about David: "With his expertise in enigmas and magic, David Kwong delights and challenges audiences around the world with his intellectual brand of “puzzles and prestidigitation.” A veteran “cruciverbalist” (crossword puzzle constructor), Kwong routinely creates puzzles for the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, and other national publications. Kwong was the head magic consultant on the 2013 worldwide hit film Now You See Me and is the puzzle and secret code consultant for the hit NBC show Blindspot. Other projects he has consulted on include: ABC’s Deception, The Imitation Game, Ant-Man, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, and The Magnificent 7. A TED Talk favorite, Kwong regularly speaks to companies and demonstrates the science of why your brain is fooled. Kwong’s book Spellbound: Seven Principles of Illusion to Captivate Audiences and Unlock the Secrets of Success was published by HarperCollins. Kwong is a graduate of Harvard University, where he studied the history of magic."
