I started twisting balloons one summer during college – I picked up one of those kits at the store. I first made very basic shapes and have slowly learned more here and there over the years. I consider myself an advanced beginner.
By training I’m a software engineer, and I generally like to do things with my hands and build things. My other random hobbies include playing sports (softball and basketball,) drawing mazes, juggling (I like throwing things,) footbagging, and baking.
I twist just for fun, not for profit, and mostly just for friends and family. Making people smile, young and old, makes me smile.
I’ll post about some of my favorite balloons to twist, with links to videos, pictures, and/or my comments about them, as well as other information. I enjoy teaching and helping new twisters. Hopefully this will help you get started!
