What to Expect
An audience can expect to be wowed, intrigued, and maybe even involved in my spectacular creative and (when requested) interactive performances. Much of what I do has never before been seen by Northwest audiences. If you are my client you can expect to have a very professional and friendly interaction with an industry veteran. I am prompt in my communication and skilled in interacting with clients, employees, and most importantly your special guests. I will take you through the entire booking process from idea generation, to navigating the technical requirements to make your vision happen, to managing the artists and schedules the night of, to handling contracting, liability insurance, and follow-up. If you've never hired circus entertainment before I will make you feel comfortable and educated about the entire process and leave you with an event that will truly blow your guests minds! You will be left with a smile and the best pictures of any event you've been to.

Additional Booking Notes
Technical requirements vary depnding on the type of entertainment you are looking for. Here are a few examples. But for specifics relating to your venue please inquire with me. I pride myself in trying to make creative solutions, so even if you think cirque style entertainment isn't possible in your venue, ask. Maybe it can happen after all!
Aerials: Most aerials require a bare minimum or 12 feet of overhead space and they all require a solid point to hang from. Sometimes their will be structural supports within the ceiling and sometimes we can set up an independently standing "Rigging structure." Ideal aerial conditions are 15 feet or higher with a structurally sound rigging point, or with a 20x20 square of free floor space for the free standing rig.
Cyr wheel: A smooth, hard, solid and level floor surface. A minimum or 12x12 feet, with an additional 3 foot clear zone. But the bigger the space the better as far as impact goes!
Chinese Pole: a minimum or 17 feet ceiling clearance and a site inspection to determine rigging possibilities.
Everything else can happen almost anywhere!
Influences & Inspiration
I am influenced by Cirque de Soleil, contemporary dance, and contemporary circus companies such as Les 7 Doight de la Main.
