Experience & Biography

I have been a balloon artist since June of 2000 and I am the owner of Party 'til you POP! LLC right here in Roswell, GA. I make balloon sculptures, balloon arches, and decorations like balloon columns

When the Covid pandemic began most of the events industry shut down for over a year. I took that lull in my balloon business to learn a new skill: welding and fabrication. This has been a big help to my business. I make welded steel balloon frames that can be covered with balloons. I have even set up a small metal shop.

At Roswell Firelabs, I lead Metal Shop Orientation on the first Sunday of the month. I also teach Welding Safety and MIG Project classes.

I am also part owner in a special effects lighting startup for the events industry. My partner, Richard Whisenhunt is also a Roswell Firelabs member. We have a balloon decor lighting gallery online.
