An ex-football player, Uebele became interested in magic at the age of five when "assisting" a magician to vanished a bottle of coke.
He had careers in the armed services, in entertainment as a"semi-pro", and in business as a senior officer for a Michigan construction firm. During his days in the Army, he won a competition to appear as a magician on the Ed Sullivan show.
Following his discharge, he did thousands of shows for veterans' hospitals. He made magic his full time business in the 1980s, establishing a magic shop called "The Land of Magic" in Boca Raton, Florida.
With Randy Merriman, a former CBS and NBC game show host, they formed Boca Raton's I.B.M. Ring number 262.
