"There's no Business like Show Business". This is an opportunity to share and present Circus History with others.

While on Circus Kirk in 1974, my generally useful status gave me the opportunity to be a performer, play in the band, be an animal trainer, stake driver, truck driver and cook. Routine stuff, actually!
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
