My interest in clowning began when I was in child. The clown was a larger than life figure that commanded the audience and made them laugh. After college I pursued learning to be a clown. I have been doing clowning for over 10 years mostly locally. Though I am not as active as I was when I started, I am still interested in the clowning profession and looking at passing on the profession to a new generation of clowns. Most of my work now is more of a hobby and doing more caring clowning than paid gigs. I get the most out of clowning being a caring clown, visiting nursing homes and hospitals. I also enjoy large group clown activities such as parades or community fairs.
