Name: Jake
Location: Cincinnati or Columbus, OH, USA
Age: 21
Website:  N/A

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
It will be 3 years this August

2. What or who got you started?
A friend had one that I randomly started messing around with, and happened across a shop that sold them about a fortnight later.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
I like the exotic nature of it, and the ability to show off because of this.  Everyone's seen someone juggling a few clubs, but not enough people have seen diabolo.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
Depends.  Lately, it's been about 2/day.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
Yes.  In addition to just practicing in public areas, I have worked at The Ohio Renaissance Festival for a vendor (who I bought my first diabolo from).  Also, I hope to be able to juggle for the Cincinnati Circus Company (www.cincinnaticircus.com) within a couple weeks.

6. Do you juggle other props?
Yep.  Since I worked for a vendor, I learned balls, clubs, rings, knives, flower sticks, and a bit of poi.

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
Sundia Shining (Triple Bearing), Henry's Carbon (long), Euro Diabolo String (yellow)

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
One.  Despite being a long time diabolist, I have not ever put much time into learning two.  It seems likely that I will this summer, though.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
Whip catches.  I've been working to perfect them behind the back, under the leg, without looking... pretty much any conceivable way to whip catch.

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
Probably one of the integral combos on a video somewhere.  Some of those are just insane.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
Excalibur Genocides.  I can only hit them about 15% of the time right now, and never when other people are watching.  Other than that, I'm trying to increase my fluidity and create/learn more combos, particularly body combos.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
Most notably, Nate and Jacob Sharpe, and Ryo Yabe, to a lesser extent.
