    I organized an elementary school carnival. We hired Dr. Owl as a balloon artist to twist balloons for kids at our event. He did a fabulous job! As the event coordinator he checked in with me first, he was punctual and attentive to each of my requests. He was patient, listening to each of the kids requests, twisting the balloons quickly into the desired shape. At the end of a three hour event, of non stop balloon twisting and always having a line of kids in front of him, he still maintained a positive and friendly demeanor. My hats off in respect to Dr. Owl’s unceasing patience with our kids and professional friendliness. I highly recommend Dr. Owl to any group, we were honored to have him at our event!

    Kept 40 Cub Scouts entertained for an hour. Ages 6 thru 10. Impressive.

    That was a fun show. I tried things I had not done before since they were all so into my show. I went over very well.

About this pro

My personality sets me apart from the rest. I am friendly, outgoing, approachable, articulate, and intelligent. I have been teaching kids (and adults), giving presentations, and performing for over 20 years. I am a real people person and always create a fun environment where ever I go. Plus, I know how to make 100s of animals and can make many of them in 15 - 20 seconds. I can work a line faster than most and still have kids choosing the animal they want and the color. This is handy for big festivals with 100s of kids and a never ending line. And I can make more complex things that take more time, which is fun at the small parties. When I perform magic, I am fun and approachable and I keep the kids occupied. My show is silly and entertaining. Kids and adults tell me its awesome! I want to also mention that I am a teacher and really good at presenting to kids of all ages. And that includes 30 hours of STARS training from when I worked at a child care center. From that I also got a MERIT portable background check done, not many people can show a background check that is as extensive as they do. I like making people smile. I have never met someone I could not make smile. Even kids that try not to smile crack under pressure from my silliness. I can not imagination a better job than making people happy. To me its the best thing in the world. Maybe that is why I am so good at it, because I love it and its a joy to do. One thing is for sure, I will brighten up a room and lift a mood at any party, event, or gathering. I just wish I had more hands sometimes, since at gigs where the line is super long, I would love to be able to crank out balloon animals even faster. I hate it when the kids have to stand in a long line.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      It really depends on what I am doing, the size of the audience, the duration, and other variables. I am willing to work with people if they have a budget and I always give multi hour discounts. I will also give package deals for a longer party that wants multiple things, such as a magic show and balloon twisting.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I was trained in the 1990's by Balloon Wizards. And now I have over 20 years of on the job training!
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I did not choose this, it chose me. I am a natural and a born entertainer, I really had no choice. No matter how hard I try to do other jobs, I always seem to come back to entertaining. I just love entertaining and I seem to be able to make it happen.
