The People of Chattacon 

All guests of honor, panelists, performers, presenters, artists or any other individual who may present in some way at Chattacon are booked in good faith and we have their guarantee that they will appear when we announce they will be at the convention. However, unforeseen events (illness, family emergencies or production work) may cause a particular guest to cancel. 

A native of New York, Mr. Sacco was transplanted in Georgia when he was 13. Following his undergraduate degree in science, Mr. Sacco graduated from the Medical College of Georgia in 1982.

Becoming a published author in 2002 with the release of ‘Awaken the Warrior,’ a study of the armor of God and spiritual warfare, Mr. Sacco formed AIM, Inc. with the purpose of public education, spiritual fortification and individual development.

Mr. Sacco is an accomplished mead maker, having been creating the golden elixir of the gods for 35+ years. His much awaited tome on all things mead is currently being edited and is expected to be released in early 2023. He will once again be stirring up a cauldron of mead at this years Chattacon, brewing up his wondrous beverage.

Having been interested in sleight of hand magic and illusion since the age of 7, Mr. Sacco has studied many forms of magic since then, having perfected his skills in card magic, hypnosis, mind reading, illusion, telekinesis, clairvoyance, and transmutational magic. He began performing magic publicly at DragonCon in 1988.

At once engaging and entertaining, he has entertained attendees of conventions such as Chattacon since then. Ever seen a magician perform with gloves on? Mr. Sacco performs as “One Magical Knight” in armor.
