How long is your show?
The show usually ranges from about 40-45 minutes. However, I can make it shorter to suit your needs.

How far in advance do I need to book you?
This is a full-time job for me. Sometimes I've been called by both performers who are sick and need me to fill in for them, or clients facing last minute changes and then decided they need entertainment. I've literally gotten calls where I've hung up the phone and left to do their show, so I'll perform immediately if needed. However, you might call for a specific day next year and find that I'm already booked. For this reason, the sooner you can confirm the better.

Do you have any restrictions about the ceiling height, space, or audience size?
No ceiling height or space is too small. I'm 5ft. 10in. and have worked with things over my head ranging from curtains, to hanging microphones or stage lights, to decorations or party streamers that were hanging down and touching the top of my head the whole time. Even though it's juggling, I don't need that much height as I can kneel or do the whole show on my knees if necessary. I've also worked in a space of literally 2 ft by 2 ft. in a private home with a grand piano on one side, a china cabinet on the other and a picture window behind me. So again, no ceiling height or space is too small, and any audience size works fine; it's just dependent upon how many willl fit into your space. I've done private parties for a handful of people, and also concert shows ranging from 3,500 up to 17,000 (yes, seventeen thousand).

What ages or grade levels can you work with?
Any! I can adapt my show and personalize it to the group; whether it's all adults at a corporate event, or a day care center of 3 yr to 5 yr olds, or events with both children and adults, elementary school through college age students, or senior citizens. I started performing as a kid, so I have experience to make sure the show is always fun, yet tasteful and appropriate.

How far do you travel?
Being based in a suburb outside of Los Angeles, I usually have a driving radius of about 3 hours. However, I am willing to go further if needed. I have several times performed nationally as well as internationally - the farthest probably being Tanzania's island Zanzibar, just off the east coast of Africa.

Do you offer choices or incorporate themes into your shows?
Yes. I personalize my show to the age, group size, and event. If requested, I can wear different costumes according to the theme, talk about a product or service, or juggle different props (nothing is too outrageous - once for a corporate event I juggled a telephone, phonebook, and computer keyboard together). For school assemblies, I am often chosen as the "reward" or "just for fun" program; but can also do my educational science show too (and like my regular show, this uses audience participation).

Can you work outside?
Yes. I work outside all the time. For any show, held on any continent, during any time of year, I'm always prepared and willing to do whatever is asked of me so the show is successful. Whether it's been a cold windy winter day outside the Sydney Opera House, a snow covered stage in New York City, or a hot summer day on the beaches of Malibu I'm ready. Additionally, I have my own sound system that DOES NOT need to be plugged in because it runs off of an 8 hour rechargable battery.

Do you need a stage?
Stages are nice, but not necessary. Sometimes it's better without a stage because it enables the audience to be closer.

Can you do strolling interaction/atmosphere?
