I used to be on the business side of Circus Contraption, who toured frequently with the New Old Time Chataqua. And we did a lot of stuff with the Flying Karamazov's, the Pickle Family Circus, and - of course - the Moisture Festival (the world's largest comedie/varieté festival) in Seattle.

I'm also affiliated - loosely, nowadays - with the School for the New Circus Arts (SANCA) and Emerald City Trapeze in Seattle, and the Vespertine Circus in SF.

I'm pretty sure we have a few friends in common!

It was some of the most important and amazing work I have ever done. I will be forever proud of the role I played in that movement.
