Sam The Wheeler - German Wheel & The Giant Wheel
I am from Ethiopia, and moved to the United States when I was 15. At the age of 16, I was introduced to the life of circus and have been involved ever since. When I am not performing, I work with youth, training them in all aspects of circus. I have been trained in many circus disciplines, including: Stilt Walking, Tumbling, Mini Trampoline, Diabolo, Tight Wire, Clowning and Unicycling... but enjoy the Gym Wheel the most.
With Gym Wheel, I have been able to travel the United States as well as internationally to perform and compete. Starting in 2011, I tried another form of the wheel. After enjoying that experience of something new, I decided to expand my talents to include this new form of Giant Wheel, which has led to, "Sam And The Giant Wheel"!
