TREVOR did his first professional appearance in 1972 at age 16. He now does 200-300 shows a year. Southwestern New England and the Connecticut River Valley are his home stomping grounds where he does about 75% of his appearances, however he also regularly appears in all 6 New England states and nearby areas of New York State and has done performances all across the U.S. as well as a few in Canada.
Although only about 30% of his work is strictly with kids, TREVOR is proud to have been voted "The Best Children's Entertainer" in the Valley Advocate art & news weekly's annual readers' poll for Western Massachusetts. However, he doesn't like being pigeonholed as a "children's entertainer" since he also works extensively with teens, adults, and elders and routinely gets rave reviews with these age groups all the time, too!
TREVOR was also voted "Best Crowd Pleaser" in the Newport RI Saint Patrick's Day parade in 2015. He loves stiltwalking in parades, and the crowds love him right back every time!

River Valley Co-op, Northampton MA, 2016
* Student Work Award
Bryn Athyn College, Bryn Athyn PA, 1975
