David Seth Kotkin (David Copperfield) was born on September 16, 1956 in Metuchen, New Jersey, USA. A well-known illusionist with a dramatic sense of theater, he has made the Statue of Liberty vanish, walked through the Great Wall of China, and made volunteers disappear and reappear in a variety of unusual places. Copperfield began performing magic professionally and teaching it at New York University when he was still a teenager. After college, he starred in "The Magic Man," a musical in which he sang, danced and, of course, performed magic. David made his TV debut in a special for ABC several years later, and shortly after that began his long-term relationship with CBS. He became the youngest person ever to be admitted to the Society of American Magicians, which heralds the climax of his career. Aside from sensational performances, David has also published two fictional books set in the world of magic and illusion. Despite big success in his career, David’s emotional life is uneven. In November 1999, Copperfield ended 5-year-old engagement to Claudia Schiffer, explaining that work had got in the way of their relationship on.
David Copperfield is a Fire Monkey. The Monkey symbolizes fun and versatility. David is likely to be unpredictable, witty, and charming, engineered to make people happy. He also has the potential to be competent, if not expert, at many and varied tasks. Copperfield is good at adapting to change or changing situations. He is naturally curious and develops a broad knowledge of many different subject areas. It helps him to be perceptive and to pick up on things that others miss. David Copperfield is also a shrewd judge of character. However, he can be unrealistically romantic and an over confident gambler. Monkey-sign people need a patient partner who is willing to work for their happiness. Dynamism coupled with decisiveness is one of the primary qualities associated with Fire. David’s decision making style is likely to be calculating, but that does not diminish the fact he is bold to go after what he wants. Charisma and flamboyance are other traits common to Fire-sign people. This also contributes to his leadership potential and ability to inspire other people. Fire's passion and enthusiasm enhance all the capabilities. There is usually an intensity characterizing David’s efforts, especially when it comes to intellectual activity. A downside of such feature is a tendency to be impatient and to have a quick temper.
