He won the “Silver Clown” in Monte Carlo and was one of a handful of catchers in the world to catch the almost impossible quadruple summersault, and all the tricks in between. He retired from catching in 2003 and turned to his other love: mechanical engineering. In the circus world he had become known for his original designs of indoor riggings and lighting systems and creating the world’s first indoor fireworks simulator.

Samadhi Hawaii is an aerial dance company in Honolulu on the island of Oahu that has grown into the top cirque-style performers in the islands as well as a prospering aerial dance and acrobatic school that takes circus arts to a another level. Samadhi Hawaii’s founder/director Andrea Torres’ career originally started far closer to the ground as a ballerina. However, when the chance came to perform as an aerial dancer in ‘Ulalena on Maui (by ARRA Montreal), she leapt at it and has been in the air ever since. After the Maui blockbuster, this flying dancer and yogini took the big leap in 2005 and formed her company with fellow performers Marcus Quiniones and Ana Prada. Since that humble beginning, Samadhi has become one of Hawaii’s most active dance companies, offering performances and a variety of classes for all ages. Samadhi Hawaii also serves as a bridge to the aerial dance world in the Pacific, having introduced aerial dance to Fiji (Oceania Dance Theatre) and to Western Samoa for the Commonwealth Youth Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Apia 2015.
