My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Circus Artist.

Let's get The Questions out of the way:

1)"So like Cirque du Soleil?" Yes, I even had the honor/curse of working for them. It was my dream, and then I moved to bigger dreams.

2) "How did you get into that?" I saw a Cirque du Soleil show, went to clown school, went to China, found a Real circus school, graduated, and was/am lucky enough to find people who want to hire me.

3) "But how do you make a living at that?" Sometimes it's harder than others, but networking and professionalism are most of it.

4) "So do you do kids birthday parties?" Sure, for the right price. Probably more than you want to pay for Junior, though.

5) "So are you from a circus family?" Nope. My mom worked in data entry and later quality assurance, my dad in computer repair. I am a first gen circus monkey.

6) (After someone has seen my act) "Wow, you're good with that broom! Can you come clean my house?" ...Standing prize of 5 dollars for broom jokes I haven't heard. That attempt was unsuccessful. Also I hate you.

OK! Now we can have a real conversation! I have had the above talk a hundred times. Who are You? What do You do? What do you Love? Hate? What can you talk about in the face of all reasonable social awareness simply because you care about it, you get excited and you want to share your enthusiasm? I want to learn these things :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am on a year-long Traincation between contracts, building a new act which has influences of, of all things, pole dance in it. So. Ask me about that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Twiddling a stick. Soon, Monkeying on a pole. Not yet. But soon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My laugh. I have a loud belly laugh. I am the best audience member, very easy to read. People also notice my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Family
My job. I love it too much :)
The next Goal
Sleep
The open minded, caring people I call my friends
The internet, sadly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This damn pole act. Much more physically demanding than dance or juggling. Choreography becomes much more difficult when you can only physically run something a handful of times before your arms fall off.

Also trying to figure out a more settled endgame for my career. For the most part in this industry you go where the work is, someone offers you a contract and poof, you are off to Germany or Dubai or Macau. I'd like to have more control over where and when I work, and to stay closer to my family here in California.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday has become the day before my rest day, so hopefully kicking up my heels somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am immensely afraid of spiders. Like can't touch pictures of spiders.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know how to iron the shoulders of dress shirts. I just...I just can't.
