• 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!

  • Calgary Party Entertainment – Sweet City Celebrations

    Last night was the evening filled with Calgary Party Entertainment at the Calgary 2012’s Sweet City Celebrations event. It was a massive party held at the BMO Centre. The party was in celebration of Calgary being named the Cultural Capital of the World for 2012.  I’ve found a few great photo streams from the event on Flickr if you missed the party and what to see what it was all about.  Check out the photos from the Stampede Promotion Committee and Jame’s Set to see how wild this party was! It was packed with Go-Go Dancers, Superheroes, Bollywood, Luchadors, Food Trucks, Living Statues, Circus artists, DJs, Cowboys, Dragons and amazing light and sound equipment.  The event included over 150 performance artists!

    I performed roving entertainment for the line ups, the lobby area and the VIP guests upstairs before the doors opened to the event, welcoming guests to the evening and creating smiles during the wait. Here’s a few photos from the evening.

  • Edmonton Entertainment at Taboo

    Hi Guys!

    A few weeks ago I performed at the Edmonton Taboo and I gotta say, it was an absolute blast! Taboo is an event run by CanWest Productions, it brings together retailers for sexy products, workshops on sexuality and provides stage entertainment throughout the night. I performed several roving characters as well as a 20 minute stage act as a Russian Sex Education Teacher. It was a great time! I especially loved when after the show people asked me “How long have you been in Canada?” and “How many languages do you speak?” It took every ounce of strength not to tell them that no, I’m not actually Russian. The attendee who asked how many languages I speak was EXTRA confused when in a thick Russian accent I casually replied, “Only one, is English.”

    Taboo had other fun performers like Joe Francis an amazing comedy hypnotist, Roxy Diva as the Master of Ceremonies for the main stage, and the sweet and talented Lindsay Istace.

    Here’s a few photos from the event taken by Christopher Peel. If you’ve never been to Taboo I suggest you check out the CanWest Productions website, they run it every year all across Western Canada and in Winnipeg.
