What to Expect
I typically do a show with 3 props, if the request is one set for the event. I would begin with fire palms, a subtle but enticing fire display that gets people's attention. The next prop would be fire fans, a flashier hand held prop that leads to my final prop: the fire hoop. Depending on what kind of an event it is, I have various themed costumes to choose from. The gypsy/bohemian theme is very popular, though I personally enjoy the more fantastical themes, such as Bacchanalia or Medieval. I also can do a traditional all black/one color get up. Music should be discussed in advance. I enjoy all music, though I am most familiar with Beats Antique, Monsoon Malabar, and the like.
I am a Florida native (from Tampa), I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and am currently living in Venice, Florida. I was a formally trained athlete who also enjoyed teaching herself to draw. This combination of discipline, creativity, endurance, and self motivation has lead me to where I am now, as a self employed visual artist and fire performer. One of my greatest passions as a child was the Renaissance Festival and to this day I still love dressing up and entertaining and inspiring people. I also like to combine my artwork with my performances by trying to bring the characters in my work to life.
Additional Booking Notes
It is very important that there is a safe area for my fueling station. This means it will be out of the way of people, especially if it is a smoking venue. I will also need about a 10 foot radius to perform in (can be smaller if there is no hoop performance) and access to electricity. I have a PA, extension cords, and clamp lights (for my fueling station).

Influences & Inspiration
Bonnie Brown of Outward Spiral in Sarasota, Florida is my hoop teacher and mentor. She introduced me to the hoop and to fire, including equipment, safety, and general knowledge.
Marguerite Barnett of Siesta Key took me under her wing for some time and showed me a wide variety of props and performance possibilities. She can most commonly be found performing private gigs in her area and with the band Didges Christ Super Drum.
Vivian Spiral is the final name I would like to specifically mention. Her strength, grace, energy, hard work, and incredible costuming skills have set a standard for my performance goals.
I have been exposed to other troupes, performers, and organizations, such as the Ohio Burn Unit, Catalyst Fire Circus, Flow Fests, Richard Deane, Cirque Nuit, and the Lucient Dossent; however the first three women I mentioned were the most influential on my performance career.
