Event Performance! – I create unique solo and group fire or LED shows utilizing a variety of fire props and partner acrobatics.
For fire shows I can facilitate the permitting process with your local Fire Marshal and provide proof of personal insurance through Specialty Insurance Agency including a customized insurance certificate naming your specific venue.

Ambient & Roving Performance –  Including juggling (clubs or knives), stilt walking, staff spinning, cane and hat tricks, and character roleplaying.  I utilize both day props and entrancing LED props to light up evening or nighttime events.

Workshops – Get your audience involved!  Ninja Staff Spinning, Basic Contact Staff, Basic Juggling, Double Staff, Fire Safety 101

Private Lessons – Individualized instruction
