In December, I quit my day job. I had been wanting to pursue circus full-time, but I also could not stand one more minute of working for the US government (CIA), especially under Trump. So I made a big decision, for once grounded in how I felt, and I walked out. I am happier. So much happier. But now that I have more time to devote to creating, I have fewer resources to do so. Your support makes my art possible and contributes to a burgeoning contemporary circus scene in the United States. With your help, I can continue creating award-winning solo and collaborative works that challenge audiences to reconsider: what is circus, what is gender, and what is intimacy.
