"I've loved balloons for as long as I can remember. In fact, that's actually a red balloon I'm holding in the picture. I've been twisted since 1984, when I started reading every balloon book that Ralph Dewey wrote. I've produced 23 VHS balloon instructional videos. Yes, I'm that old. I've traveled the world teaching our chosen craft. But my favorite thing to do is to twist skinny tubes of tree sap into the heart's delight of whoever happens to be standing at the front of my line. Just give me a festival street corner for my set-up, and I'm a happy camper. If you're up for learning some quick and easy charmers that are fast and furious out of the bag, while being up and at 'em for bringing out the 5, 10, & 20 dollar bills, come on over to the Jam Room and let's play!"
