About me

Growing up in Rochester, NY, Avi spent his youth bouncing between a fascination with animation and a playful obsession with juggling and gymnastics. His interest in animation eventually brought him to Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he studied Graphic Design and New Media before deciding to join the circus school in Quebec City, Canada. A year later, he landed a job with Cirque du Soleil and began working as an acrobat and fire juggler. During his career as a circus performer, friends and colleagues began approaching him for photo and video shoots; soon what started as a few odd jobs turned into a passion. His drive for creativity and excellence has allowed him to create images with some of the best circus artists in the world.
