About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Rather than standing still and mechanically cranking out balloon sculptures like a human vending machine, I stand out in the fact that most of my balloon creations are scripted Performance Art. I engage and interact with my audience while making the sculpture, which makes for an unforgettable experience, even after the creation itself has expired.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love performing. I have been a performer since I was 4 years old and I got my first Magic kit. I have been performing magic for over 38 years, and I have been making balloons for over 34 years.

How did you get started doing this type of work?
It chose me, I didn't have any choice in the matter. All my life, people have told me that this is what I'm good at. In 2005 I had an opportunity to quit my job and try to make a go of it as a professional entertainer. Turns out, they were right!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do alot of restaurant work. I can be found at Joe's Crab Shack on Rainbow/Lake Mead on Friday nights, Joe's on Sunset/Green Valley Pkwy on Saturday nights, and Dick's Last Resort in the Excalibur on Sunday nights. I also do alot of birthday parties, grand openings, special events, etc. NOTE: when working at Joe's Crab Shack, the show is VERY kid-friendly and scripted for all ages. However when working Dick's Last Resort, my performance style is very rude, suggestive, and "edgy", to go with the theme of the restaurant. Though I will not treat the kids this way directly, they will very likely see some rude and suggestive balloons that I make for other patrons of the restaurant. If you've never been to Dick's, you're in for an experience you will never forget!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Please be aware of the situational circumstances for which you are hiring an entertainer. A pool party at 3 in the afternoon on a sunny July day in Las Vegas can be a GREAT time for the kids, but it is a DISASTER for balloons! It is impossible to make balloons in that kind of heat and expect them to last beyond 10 seconds. And doing a magic show in that environment is equally impossible.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish people understood how much time and planning goes into a simple 5-minute scripted performance piece. But then again, if I do my job right, they shouldn't even have the occasion to think about it.
