THIS IS HOW I GOT STARTED:

I began twisting while volunteering at the University of Washington Medical Center (looking for a way to entertain patients). I found myself in Seattle's Pike Place Magic Shop and purchased a 1.75$kit with instructions for making a balloon dog. I fell in love with the art and have been twisting ever since. I turned "pro" in 2004 and am privileged to have worked for, or volunteered with such groups as: Circus Contraption, Jet City Improv, Fricker's Follies and Pure Cirkus. Balloons have opened up a whole new world for me and I'm pleased to say that I've learned to make a lot more than balloon dogs ;)

YES, THAT WAS ME:

A lot of people send me e-mails asking "Are you the balloon guy who was at-" most of the time the answer is "Yes." I was the balloon artist at the school carnival, I was the guy at the community center, Folk Life, Sea Fair... In the picture above I was the balloon guy at Benaroya Hall, on stage with Santa & Marvin Hamlisch (I'm the one wearing the balloon hat). Balloons really have created a lot of opportunities for me and I love being a part of the Seattle entertainment scene.
