How I came to spin fire



This is my inspiration.
I've been spinning poi for over a year and a half now, having started back in April '09. I've come a really long way; I started with a pair of tails and practiced, practiced, practiced. It was this August that I first picked up a pair of kevlar poi, dunked them unceremoniously into a cup of paraffin, pulled out a lighter and burned my place in history. It's been an amazing experience, and I wouldn't have traded it for all the sex in the world.

Here's me at a recent convention. I cleared the hotel for my performance; try to ignore them, they're off-camera and pretty unfunny. Action starts at about 1:30
