Performing for London's Gatwick Airport

For the last 3 days, I was hired by the Underground Circus to perform this illusion for the Gatwick airport in the World Routes Trade Show.  It was great fun working with all the Brits.  I found some really good comedy to accompany the act.  I was able to pull a lot of traffic into their booth - clients super happy!

My beautiful training space

I am super fortunate to have this studio available to me every morning for 3 hours.  It is an early start, 6:00am, but I just love going there and working.  Expect some wicked video very soon!

Hire Us for an Enchanted Evening of Delicious Japanese Food and Circus!

You will not find more authentic, healthy, delicious Japanese home cooking  on the west coast of Canada.  Check out Yoko West's blog:

We do small parties.  Hire all 3 of us, Chris, Yoko and I, to put on a ravishing evening of unforgettable cuisine and cutting edge circus performance.  Wow!  What a combo!

Chris' First Video!

Well, it's about time. I've finally made and edited a juggling video.

The world of juggling owes a lot to the internet. Because of the ability to instantly share a video with the world, concepts are developed all over the world and then immediately expanded upon by whoever thought it was a good idea. And so, the method of sharing our work as jugglers has come in the form of videos such as this one.

My friend Tyler from our hometown of Calgary paid me a visit and we spontaneously decided that it was high time we made our own tribute to the internet gods. This video happened in three days of filming, and eight hours of editing that began at eleven o'clock at night.

Please enjoy the fruits of our obsession and sleep deprivation.
