Circus found Timmy late in life.  With music and weirdness on his side, he forged ahead.  He became an artist, performer and community worker in 1990's Belfast, a place rife with artistic fever.  This was the beginning of a full time career in the arts, often wearing many hats as a performer, carnival artist, acrobat, musician, technician, or as part of the crew.  Streetwise Community Circus Workshops, Belfast Community Circus School, Lunar Circus, Circus Caravan, Cahoots NI, the BEAT Initiative are some of the international arts organizations that Timmy has been a valued member of for many years.  Now he plays an integral role in String Circus, a musical troupe with an acrobatic twist.

Kelsey began her musical and circus training as a kid.  She has played fiddle in a variety of performances and often combines it with her career in circus.  She began training at Circus Juventas in 1995 which led to work with Xelias Aerial Arts (MN, USA).  She landed in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 2003, and worked in a multitude of community projects and started an early years program, Itty Bitty Circus, at Belfast Circus School.  She has performed internationally in Ireland, United Kingdom, Catalan, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, South Korea, and the United States with numerous companies including The Barren Carrousel Aerial Circus Troupe, Belfast Circus, Cahoots NI, Kabosh, Pigeon and Plums, Premiere Circus, Theatre de La Jeune Lune, and Xelias Aerial Performance Company.  Now based in Minnesota, she is part of the troupe, String Circus.
