He took first place in the "Magic on the Beach" competition in Miami in 2003 and was named "Most Original Performer" in the International Brotherhood of Magicians' Strolling Olympics in 2002. In 2004, he was voted Tampa Bay Stage Magician of the Year. Byrne is a regular performer at restaurants in Clearwater, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg.
