Member Type: Individual member (c. teacher,trainer and coach)

I began acrobatics at the age of 4 taking part in recreational gymnastic classes. I began competing in trampoline and tumbling around the age of 12 and progressed to an international level competing at various National and International competitions. I joined Cirque Du Soleil in 1997 for the Creation of the water show "O" I trained Russian Swing for 5 months before having to receive a surgery for a medical condition. I later joined the new cast of Saltimbanco in 1998 and performed Russian Swing, Chinese Pole, Bungee and a back up Diabolo act up to 2004 Late 2004 my wife and I joined the creation of Corteo where we created and performed the Trampo Bed act for 2 years. I also got a taste for clown/character work creating and performing the August Clown character. In 2007 I joined the coaching team at Cirques IHQ in Montreal. There I took part in all creations of the company in some form and handled specific and general formations. Re-Integrating injured artists was also a large on going mandate. In April 2018 I am leaving my position as Full time Acrobatic coach to seek out other adventure. Who knows what the future holds for me.
