Louis began juggling as a hobby in in 2005. He quickly progressed, met the local juggling clubs, regional juggling festivals, and soon was attending the world's largest juggling conventions in Europe where a whole new circus world unfolded in front of his eyes. All of this on the side of two post-graduate degrees aiming to becoming a genetic scientist, a life path which is on indefinite hold. Getting deeper into the circus world and discovering his own artistry, h expanded his repertoire of circus skills to include expert crystal ball manipulation, stilt-walking, and solo and partner acrobatics. He has performed and taught juggling and other circus arts in events and on the streets in Canada, Hong Kong, China, and India. Coming back to my hometown of Toronto in 2015, he discovered SoCirC (Social Circus Circle) and found a meaningful role as a support person, coach, and participant. His passion for education and empowering youth is strong and comes through in his work with Square Circle Social Circus. Aside from social circus, he has been training in facilitating listening/talking circles as a process and tool for fostering healthy group dynamics, which is a major element of social circus that I hope to continue to serve.
