When l was 4 years old my grandparents took me to see Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey The Greatest Show on Earth and I have been hooked on circus ever since.I grew up in a small town in Upstate NY as a middle child always searching for attention. I was an avid athlete and obsessed with golf. When I was 12, juggling was taught in my middle school and I loved it. I quickly learned how to juggle 3 balls and worked my way up to clubs, rings, and 4 balls. I picked up a unicycle at a garage sale a few years later and learned that skill as well. After Graduating high school I went to PennState to study Business and Photography. Little did I know that decision would sculpt my beginnings in performance. PennState had a wonderful magic club on campus as well as a juggling club. I quickly made friends and became obsessed with card magic, juggling, and unicycle. One month after finishing at PennState my performing partner Chris Chelko and I made our first television appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno which sparked our confidence that we could make a living as performers. We toured the College Market together for 5 years with our show the “Adult Circus” a two man variety show featuring, magic, juggling, and our two man mind reading act. In 2009, hundreds of gigs in the college and private market later, I decided it was time to go solo. Chris landed an amazing job on the Tonight Show, and I was thrust into my solo career with the “Solo Circus”. Later that fall I made my appearance on the new Jay Leno Show and was working non stop. ! To this day, I have performed at over 500 colleges, cruise ships all over the world, resorts, private events, and theaters. In 2013 I made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman and couldn’t be more excited about all the new things being added to my show. I live in NYC, in a 17 foot loft where I can practice whenever I want. I love it here and can’t wait to continue performing and creating in all aspects of my life!
