He began working in circus arts in the late 1990’s as a performer for Cirque du Soliel. He is trained in many styles of dance including ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop and Latin. He is an aerial and acrobatics specialist who has traveled the world performing with several international companies in festivals, cabarets and television shows.
