Why hire Tuxedo Jimmy?
Hi there balloon fans, It's Tuxedo Jimmy, Portland's LOCAL, hardest working balloon twister, . Many times you may have seen me at Sat&Sun market or the farmers markets. I have been twisting balloons for over six years, I am now a full time student learning American Sign Language, I am hearing just to be clear . I know over 100 balloon designs and can free style just about any thing you could want...I love a challenge. I also juggle and have unlimited jokes and few magic tricks . I perform at birthday parties for adults & kids, or events of any kind, grand openings, company picnics...Book my wife and I (her profile is Portland paint parties) as a team and get a great package deal!
Pictures speak a thousand words. I am warm, calm and care free. Like someone that has been doing this for years, because I have. Easy going and relaxed even under pressure, I am a true performer, and I see my craft as an art. I have jokes and stories' for mostly all of my balloons and when I see that little smile, I know I am making your day and not just a balloon, and will take my time to make sure that everyone gets exactly what they want.
I also have a small helium tank and a floor pump that can inflate a balloon in one second.
I also do balloon caricature, wich is portrait art with balloons.
If you need some one who knows just a little bit of American Sign Language I am a third term student learning ASL, my skill level is above Novice high (ATCFL guideline).
I love what I do, and have a genuine respect for the craft. I can be quite creative if asked for something challenging, and will never tell some one no, I don't know how to make that. I will find a way to make that balloon and I make sure every kid gets a balloon.
From what I have been told, time and time again, this alone sets me apart, and even the adults at the kids parties were entertained.
I do not make you sit down and sign some used car salesman like contract. What you can expect is speaking with my wonderful wife, who handles a lot of my booking work and calendar.
I do ask that you leave a review if you have time .
All of my reviews are genuine, most of the time my reviews have the name of the person, and the organization, or school. Not a generic, plain, or out of state or otherwise questionable sounding review, both my wife and I are insured.
I have lived in Portland my whole life, I have roots and family here that I could never replace. This is my hometown, and I love Portland.
What to Expect
I bring all of my own equipment. If its outside, a shaded area is great!
