I was the type of child that was always looking for something to challenge myself with and so one year my parents thought it would be fun and different if they got me a unicycle for my birthday. It wasn’t long before I was riding around town on my little one-wheeled bike. This led to a $100 bet from an uncle that I couldn’t juggle and ride at the same time; so I did.
Shortly thereafter we had a situation involving the fire department when my neighbours looked out the window after dusk and saw flames soaring high from our house. Too young to have money and well before Amazon or eBay, I had made myself some juggling torches and was on the front lawn literally juggling with fire.
This led to joining the Mc Master Juggling club and eventually to my first business at 16 years old as Juggles the Clown. This was the point that I was hooked. Entertaining was incredible.
