About

Hi, I am the proprietor of Magic Circus! I started with the dream of turning my passion for anthropology (the study of humans) and my hobbies of circus arts, into my profession and sharing with others the joy of circus through entertainment and participation.
Magic Circus started as a single member LLC (Just me), contracting a roster of local talent when needed. Specializing in entertainment with a strong social circus aspect, demonstrating Circus as a metaphor to achieve dreams. Being hired mostly to work events at small venues such as nonprofits, academic institutions, cultural, & city events. I expanded into concession equipment & decor offering organic popcorn and cotton candy, bubble machines, balloon columns, and a photo backdrop (selfie stage).
At just about the one-year mark of setting up the business I was faced with my own mortality as I was stricken ill and had to have cardiac surgery to get a mechanical heart valve. During my surgery, hospitalization, and recovery my paradigm was changed from no limits, to know limits. However I was able to deal with my new physical and emotional alignments with the help of circus skills.
Circus helped me stay positive and recover, having my sternum fractured and separated for the procedure resulted in a grueling recover. I started practicing card & coin tricks when I could not lift any weight. When I could juggle it helped me get back to where I wanted to be with my arm strength and general stamina. The medication I now take keeps me from being able to safely stilt walk or extreme unicycle. I have certain limitations now, but I have embraced them. The experience made me see circus as more than just a set of skills but the process of testing the limits of what's possible and expanding on them where you can, not with force, but with play.
I recently fully recovered from my surgery and only a few months later the pandemic started, and things have slowed down even more. Having been unable to work for several months and all the other unexpected obstacles has become a financial burden to where I was considering liquidating Magic Circus entirely. That is where YOU come in!
With your help I would like to switch Magic Circus from being entertainment centered to education centered (not that it wouldn’t be entertaining). And crank the social circus aspect to “11”, by turning Magic Circus into a nonprofit. Visiting hospitals, orphanages, retirement homes, etc. Bringing joy, giving class education and inspiration. My goal is to spread the knowledge of circus as a resource for peoples to use to overcome obstacles in their own lives. I want to transition into the more educational aspects of circus and magic and meet folks on their level and facilitate positive change in peoples’ lives and with your help we can do it!
I envision Magic Circus’ future as the facilitation of engaging educational programs related to circus arts for children of all ages and all abilities. its mission is to be a source of community engagement and outreach. And its value the cultivation and promotion of a holistic, noncompetitive, and supportive environment to inspire and encourage the creative potential inherent in everybody!
