  • Screamfest Fire Dancer – Fire Hula Hoop, Fire Eating, Poi and Staff

    I’ve been having a blast performing the past few weekend at Screamfest. Here’s some photos the lovely and talented AmberLynn Walker of Insane Entertainment snapped during one of my hoop performances. I’ve been providing fire shows on the Calgary Stampede main stage doing comedy acts with fire eating, fire poi, fire staff and three fire hoops.

    Check out the photos below from one of my fire hoop sets. Thanks Amber!!

  • Calgary Tattoo Festival 2012 – Fire Dancing, Stilt Walking and Hula Hoop Dancing

    I had a blast this weekend working Calgary’s Tattoo Festival. I provided a comedy fire show everyday on the mainstage with fire eating, fire poi and fire hooping. The show also included some audience participation and tattoo related stand up comedy. My favorite part of this event is that all you have to do is ask people one question: “Do you have a tattoo?” and they instantly they start stripping. Who wouldn’t love an event like that?!?

    In addition to the stage show I did some roving Stilt Walking and Hula Hooping. I made an effort to interact with and politely distract those who were in the chair getting inked. Everyone was grateful for the happy distraction from the feeling of being tattooed. One gentleman while in the chair stated; “You should be at all the Tattoo Conventions! This is great!” I was happy to help out, I know the feeling of getting inked and having a good distraction can help make the time go by much faster.

    For those of you who saw my stage show, I was joking about my “patriotic” tattoo. ; )

  • Las Vegas Fire Dancing

    I was in Vegas last week to attend Photoshop World, an annual photography and Photoshop conference. It was an absolute blast!! I used to teach darkroom photography, digital photography and graphic design to high school students and I’ve missed that part of my life tremendously. Attending Photoshop World was a gift to myself to help rekindle my visual arts spirit. The entire event was filled with excellent workshops from the world’s best instructors, hilarious geeky inside jokes and other attendees that felt like long-time friends instantly. I made lots of friends, learned so many things, was inspired and am excited to go back again next year.

    My new friend Sharon wrote a blog about the event and joined another fellow photographer and myself for an LED and fire photo shoot. Check out some of her photos and blog at Hell Ziggy.

    More photos coming soon!
