People and organizations hire me to foster a dynamic vibe with balloon "magic." If you are planning a small or large gathering of any sort with some need for unique pizzaz, I could be a great addition to your party. Being dubbed "a normal person who can dazzle with balloons," I have a passion for engaging with people (yes, children to adults) and creating fun moments together: with wit, humor and creativity.

I make every attempt to be prompt and professional, relaxed and flexible. And I wear the most natural smile my parents put on me. :)

I've entertained at a wide array of events: bar mitzvahs, wedding receptions, large fundraisers, birthday parties, block parties, festivals, carnivals, christenings, grand re-openings, bring your kids to work day, and the like. People hire me typically as the lead entertainment, and also as part of a larger mix of events and entertainment.

The typical amount of time is 1.5 - 2 hours, but I've been known to entertain for an entire day, without losing much luster. Fun will be had!

Nick Connell’s Response:

I'm flattered, Nicole. You are generous. I appreciate your kind family and friends, and that we created a space together that was natural, fun and supportive of the celebration you planned. I'd be up for at least a few more birthday parties, maybe a dozen or so. :) Peace

Like I said, I would have liked to spend more time with your party. Such good people. And your comments are refreshing. The coffee shop across the street was also refreshing. :) Best wishes to you all.
