He is also a member of the Minneapolis Fire Collective, doing fire performances, instructing fire play and safety to other fire performers, and has performed in the conclave at Burning Man. David’s specialties are fire breathing, fire eating, fleshing, dancing with oversized flaming props, and bravery.
