About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am considered an entertainer in my professional field, which means that I can provide multiple services for my clients. I am continually educating myself to grow professionally so that I can provide not only the best skills for my clients, but offer them a wide variety of options to choose from. I work as a professional clown, face painter, body artist, balloon twister, balloon decorator, magician, temporary body artist, henna/mehendi artist and airbrush artist.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love making people laugh. The looks of awe that I get when performing are so worthwhile. Seeing a child's face light up over a face painting or really great balloon sculpture is so fun. Also when the kids run and hug me at the end of a show - priceless.

    She was absolutely amazing! Momo engaged all of the kids and adults alike. Her magic show was very entertaining and the balloon creations were amazing! I would absolutely hire her again and highly recommend her- you will not be disappointed.

    We originally had scheduled a bouncy house for my daughter's birthday but since the weather was bad, I had to cancel. It was two days before her party and I searched online for a clown. I never hired a clown but couldn't be happier with Momo the Clown. Maureen was outstanding. We had many more children than expected and Momo the Clown entertained about 24 seven year olds with a funny, interactive magic show that kept all those kids attentive. She made the most amazing balloon sculptures and made sure that every child felt special. I am so thankful to her for making my daughter's birthday so memorable. I will definitely recommend her to family and friends.

    I am sorry that you were disappointed with the balloon twisting services I provided. At the event, there was a large majority of infant to toddler children who I was to be providing balloons to. In my contract it does state that I will not give balloons to children under 3 years of age due to choking hazards. On several occasions I had to ask the parents to please take the balloons away from the children because they were putting them in their mouth. I did recommend that the adult hold the balloons in their possession and not give them to the infants. I did modify the designs made to be as child safe as possible based on the design (no loose or small pieces that if the adult should give it to a child, even after I recommend that they not due to choking hazards, it has the least amount of hazard that I know how to prepare as an entertainer. This did make for an uncomfortable situation for me. Please keep in mind that that I was only contracted to do balloon services and was not equipped for any other type of entertainment. I did make a wide variety of balloons for the adults present, nearly all of them complex designs and made every request asked of me, even items that I had never previously made before or were on my suggestions menus. I am also truly sorry that you didn't like the two full sized centerpieces of Elsa and Anna that I made prior to arriving at your event, as a bonus, for table centerpieces, at no extra charge. I can only surmise that had I been aware of the overall ages of the majority of the children present, I would have suggested different services, such as my toddler package, which has bubble play, interactive songs and dancing, a music and march parade, puppets, etc. which are tailored toward infant to toddler aged children and are are more age appropriate as well as more entertaining for children in the age group at your party. Again, I apologize that you were dissatisfied with my balloon twisting services. I tried to accommodate the guests to the best of my ability based on the the situation and still maintain the safety of the children at the party as well as provide extra bonuses to the birthday child and parent.

    Maureen was so great with the kids at my son's first birthday party. She was a total hit and probably my best investment at the party. Highly recommended!

    We hired MoMo to do face painting for my daughters birthday party last year (sorry took so long to review). We ABSOLUTELY loved her work!! I to this day can't stop raving about her work. I have given her contact info to a few people I hope they contacted her because she is well worth every penny we paid. Thinking about hiring her for an adult only party!! Lol Thanks MoMo!!

    Maureen was great! Very professional! She came in costume and was so popular she had a long line all night long!! She had to cut the line off at the end of the event, which was unfortunate but understandable- or she might have been there all night!! I would hire her again and recommend her to others! Thank you Maureen!!

    Maureen is fabulous, people person, and truly gifted at what she does! In addition, she is a generous, kind hearted, and sincere person. She is the kind of person who comes early & stays late and never abandons her work, which exemplifies her passion and dedication! I have already spoke to Chamberlain college about using her exclusively for future events! Thank you so much for sharing your passion with us and making the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer walk stand out!

    Could not have had a better experience with Momo. She exceeded my expectations. It was my sons first birthday and I had no idea what to do. She came in and took charge of all the kids and they were entertained the ENTIRE time! Her face painting skills are amazing and the kids kept going back for more. So glad I found her. She dressed as theCat in the Hat for my cat in the hat theme and brought along two adorable helpers as Thing 1 and Thing 2. They entertained while she face painted. Will definitely be using her for future parties and if I could give more stars I would.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I routinely attend conferences geared toward the entertainment community. I teach at face painting conventions and regularly attend balloon and clown jams, conferences and meetings.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Balloon Twisting Face Painting MoMo Silly Magic Show Song & Dance Routines, Interactive Games
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Talk to the business owner. Ask questions! Get a feel for the person coming to entertain your friends, family and children. Are they willing to work with you to tailor their services to match your event? Look out for "yes men". If they don't have limits, they arent' being honest with you. No performer can single handedly entertain 100 children in an hour where everyone get a balloon and/or face painting. It's also fair to ask, just how many guests can be serviced in an hour? Ask what their limits are, and compare when you are shopping around.
