Eran Raven was born Eran Feigenbaum on March 3, 1974 in Highland Park, New Jersey. His mother was a high school principal and his father was a rocket scientist. He became interested in mentalism after he realizing the way he asked questions could influence the person's response or willingness to respond to the request. Raven became fascinated by, and make much use of, this nonverbal communication.
In October and November 2007, Raven was one of ten mentalist contestants on the primetime NBC series Phenomenon, which was hosted by Tim Vincent and judged by Criss Angel and Uri Geller. He finished as runner-up on the series, after performing dangerous demonstrations of mentalism involving razor blades, snakes, scorpions, and nail guns.
A demonstration with Holly Madison went wrong when Raven was bitten by a snake on live TV and had to have his hand bandaged, but decided to continue.
During rehearsals for another demonstration Raven was injured which resulted in multiple ruptured disks in his back. He used a wheelchair for a period and a cane for a period thereafter. He has commented that he will reattempt this demonstration
