He has been trained by members of the Big Apple Circus Clown Care Unit, world juggling champion Tony Duncan, and the NY Goofs under the direction of former dean of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, Dick Monday. He worked at the Streb Laboratory for Action Mechanics teaching juggling and slapstick for multiple summer seasons. He currently holds the world record for juggling clubs while bouncing on a pogo stick.  Come see his show to see what he'll juggle next!
