In the last several years, balloon twisting has taken on an even greater role in Chris’ presentations. If you can name it, Chris can probably make it out of balloons! His “twisted” sense of humor, combined with his twisted magic and balloons makes quite an impression for all kinds of events.
Today, he combines his background in broadcasting, performance, education, entertainment and museums to create unique, programming that’s both intriguing and entertaining.
