About David Kwong

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 is the puzzle and secret code consultant for the hit NBC show “Blindspot.” He was the head magic consultant on the 2013 worldwide hit film Now You See Me and recently co-created Deception, a show for ABC about a magician who joins the FBI. Other films Kwong and his Misdirectors Guild have worked on include The Imitation Game, Ant-Man, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, and The Magnificent 7.

Kwong was a featured speaker at TED 2014. His talk on how human beings are “wired to solve” involved hiding secret messages in the New York Times crossword puzzle. Kwong’s book Spellbound: Seven Principles of Illusion to Capti vate Audiences and Unlock the Secrets of Success was published by Harper Business in May.

Kwong is a graduate of Harvard University, where he studied the history of magic.
