By chance I had the opportunity to be part of an amazing circus school in Amsterdam called Circus Elleboog, they were part of a social circus network called the Caravan Network. This was the foundation of my training and love for the circus arts.

From there I trained in swinging trapeze and dance in Carampa, Madrid.

I loved to travel and Circus became my bread and butter whether it was hanging trapezes from a tree or fire spinning on the street.

When I returned to Cork I trained with Cork Community Circus at the time which led me to meet different companies and create shows and perform throughout Ireland.

From there, this group formed a new company called Circus Factory Cork and I became one of the youth leaders. I am so happy that I get the opportunity to meet young people through this art form ,learning together and sharing my passion for the creativity of Circus!!
