Part-time busker, full-time circus artist, currently training in Melbourne and looking for new friends to throw things up with ;)
Really Really Into: Being upside down, lighting things on fire in a safe and controlled fashion, partner dancing (blues! swing! lindy! WHERE IS THE SCENE HERE PLEASE TAKE ME TO IT), passing clubs, trading traveling stories, hunting really good street art, staying up till dawn on the beach, watching cartoons (Steven Universe and Gravity Falls and Adventure Time!), stickers, dismantling capitalism.
Not Really Into: straight folks, monogamy, heteropatriarchcal systems of oppression.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend the vast majority of my time working towards putting my body in increasingly strange shapes. I also blues dance, perform acro-swing, train circus arts furiously, and spend much of my time upside down. I also teach all of the above.
I’m really good at
Being mid-air and upside down. Putting other people into the air
and making them upside down. Screenprinting. Making metal do what I
want it to. Empathizing. Telling stories that make you laugh too
hard. Making art. Cooking damn good morning-after breakfasts.
The six things I could never do without
-People. I'm incredibly extroverted and require lots of
-Art. I quickly start to lose touch with my sanity when I can't
-Physicality. When I can't move my body in some way (dance,
aerials, acrobatics), my world is an unhappy place.
-Sex. Good sex, specifically; I can do without bad sex.
-Independence. Any relationships I have need to account for a
fierce independence to my own life.
-Community. Circus family, dance community, festy friends...the
list of the worlds I run in and appreciate goes ever on, and I
couldn't live without it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When my next training session is and how I can be upside-down or
midair as soon as possible. When I can manage to see everyone I
On a typical Friday night I am
Surrounded by a crowd of old friends and new strangers with a drink
in one hand and a grin on my lips while being unnecessarily
charming and witty. Possibly upside down.
You should message me if
You're a political radical with a penchant for long discussions
about dismantling oppressive systems followed by getting tied up.
You're fellow circus people, and want to stretch for hours before
cuddling up to get lost in a movie. You're a traveler up for
parties till dawn and glitter on every inch of your skin when we
stumble into daylight. You're a sweet femme queer boy who wants to
be my girlfriend. You can embody any of these traits and message me
about with without being completely creepy.
