The art of being able to lose oneself and feel complete.

At what point in your life did you decide that playing with fire was a good idea?

My happiest moments have never left; they will always be there when I light up with friends and those closest to me.

Most memorable fire show?
Being surprised at a desert gig when we were told that we’d be performing with Macy Grey and Kellis, and then actually meeting them later that night.

How do you spend your time when not playing with fire?
I would probably be sitting at home bored or causing havoc in the streets of Dubai.

Tools of the trade?
I use poi (single cathedrals), triple poi (three heads on each chain), staff, the orb, fire breathing and fire eating.
