About Your Host

Hi. I’m Siegfried, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I'm a full-time award-winning professional magician. Born and raised in Ecuador, my first international appearance was in 2011 in Bogotá, Colombia. In 2015, I headlined at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world, where my performance was highly praised by reviewers and critics. In 2017, my show See/Saw, hosted in collaboration with Atlas Obscura, premiered in Los Angeles and later in New York in 2018. I'm looking forward to guiding you through this journey!

For questions about this experience, please contact the host directly through Airbnb.
