These past 2 years have been absolutely incredible in every way. Being on tour with Circus Smirkus has allowed me to follow my dreams of running away with the circus. My fellow castmates are more like family than friends. The circus ring is my true north, my “home” and when I step in that ring, I feel more alive than anywhere else in the world!
Here is a small snapshot of my performances on tour:

At Smirkus summer camp last year (2015) the end of season performance was “The end of the world as we know it” and all performances were based on everyone’s biggest fears, i.e. being afraid of the ocean, afraid of being alone, afraid of the dark, etc.
In this performance, my group’s fear was the fear of spiders…..ewwww, how many of you have a fear of spiders? I don’t really care personally but both my brothers can’t stand them so I have to go catch and remove them or my brothers tend to act like girls if I don’t. Silly boys!
Hope you enjoy this little performance. I’ll be adding lots more videos and photos from the last 4 years so that you can see my humble beginnings.
p.s. I am on the lower wire to the left first (girl in braids with back to you) and then on the middle wire at the end doing the straddle split. 🙂
