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

Having spent three seasons on Circus Kirk in 1973, 1974, and 1975, I learned firsthand what being on the road was all about. I fell in love with the business and kept it up for 18 years before finally calling it quits.
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.
