My mother is responsible for the how and when: Driven to teach me how to fall safely (after a motorcycle accident left her brother, my uncle paralyzed) she signed me up for circus camp when I was 12 years old. She also signed me up for horseback riding, soccer, hockey, softball, and gymnastics. She put her own fears about safety aside so I could become strong and fearless. She brought me to my first circus show and recognized the quiet passion that was growing inside my little mind. 

My work is my life’s work. My art is a representation of all circus artists who have came before me and all who will come after. It is also a testament to the moments of here and now. As the minutes turn into hours into months and into years, I continue to live this dream, eyes wide open.
