In September of 2008 I was involved in a nasty motorcycle wreck. In the wreck I broke my clavicle and 7 ribs on one side, my left wrist on the other. After a surgery I was at home healing and surfing Youtube when I came across David Brenion's old channel. I became fascinated by the fact he was mouth inflating all the balloons for his sculptures (this was astonishing to me at the time). I thought to myself, I wonder if I could do that? I bought some cheap balloons and began trying to mouth inflate as a way to rehabilitate my lungs after having so many rib fractures. I started making his creations and others from Youtube artists such as Michael Floyd.

Needless to say I healed up fine from the accident and found a new skill (more like obsession) and late last year started my part time business. I attended my first convention this year (Twist and Shout). For all of you who were there that I had a chance to meet...Thank You for taking the time to make me feel welcome and sharing your knowledge.

It's always nice to read how people started in this funny old business.
