The Balloon Academy! I am pulling together everything I’ve learned in the past twenty years of twisting balloons together into one ambitious project — an online and live balloon school! The Balloon Academy will teach you balloon art from a variety of seasoned artists, taking you from “what’s a balloon” to making some of the most popular and creative sculptures anywhere.
Little Laffs! In September 2013 I started Little Laffs, a variety show for kids. Each month I bring some of my uber-talented friends to the fabulous Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn for a great show of magic, juggling, balloons, music, and fun. Oh yeah, parents get a Bloody Mary or Mimosa.
