I am a CPA just out of graduate school working in Raleigh full time
and having a blast in my off time.
I have a license to spin fire, in Raleigh NC I have gotten the
basics down pat for contact staff and I did my first fire spin on
the 4th of may. I have a 4' & a 5' led contact staff to use in
clubs. I prefer the longer staff, but I have the shorter one for
clubs with low ceilings.
I am always looking for new and interesting ways to be
crazy/exceptional. However when I go out my focus is to have fun,
even if it means I am not the craziest bastard out there. I spend a
lot of time thinking about doing cool shit and then doing said cool
shit, time permitting.
My current projects are:
1.) Making my own Phosphorescent Fabric paint for costume making.
The ones that you can purchase in the store either don't glow
brightly enough, only glow in one color, or aren't fabric
I found a site that has high quality daylight invisible glow in the
dark fabric paint. So I do not need to go through the hassle of
shipping pigment from mainland China.
2.) Building a device that creates a stable tornado of fire in
I have built a small scale machine which I have made tornados in
yellow, blue, green, and a dull yellow. The machine is fine for
personal use but has safety issues and only a 2' tall vortex.
I have almost completed the larger machine. I hope to have a 6'
tall 8" wide vortex. This version is much safer because tHe fire
source does not spin.
3.) Learning new contact staff maneuvers and figuring out how to
dance while spinning without hitting myself or others.
