Peter Rodriguez

Magician and Magic Teacher was in our very first magic class in El Salvador. Peter has studied, practiced and performed magic diligently since 2004.  He was one of the original founders of Magic Power, a magic organization that does anti-gang work by training children threatened by the gang MS-13 to become magicians.  Magic Power was awarded a $5000 grant from the Ashoka Foundation to continue this important and meaningful work.  Peter is currently in the most prestigious Culinary School in El Salvador studying to be a chef.  He and fellow magician and culinary student, Maricela, have dreams of opening a restaurant with a magic theme–magic decorations, table to table roving magicians and a stage show each night.  Peter is one of the teachers at our annual Theater, Art and Magic Campamento.
