TREVOR did his first professional appearance in 1972 at age 16. He now does 200-300 shows a year. Southern New England and the Connecticut River Valley from mid-state Vermont to the coast of Connecticut are his home stomping grounds where he does about 75% of his appearances, however he 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 early in his career.

TREVOR was voted "Best Crowd Pleaser" in the Newport RI Saint Patrick's Day parade in 2017. With over 100 parades under his belt, it's obvious that he loves stiltwalking in parades — and the crowds love him right back every time!  

Although only about 30% of his performances are strictly with children, TREVOR is absolutely delighted to have been voted "The Best Children's Entertainer" in the Valley Advocate art & news weekly's annual "Best of the Valley" readers' poll for the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts in 1991. However, he doesn't like being pigeonholed as a "children's entertainer" since he works extensively with teens, adults, elders, and mixed-age groups to a very long line of rave reviews with these other age groups as well. And although this award category has not been awarded since then, TREVOR is currently still the #1 entertainer in Western MA: entertaining more people of all ages at more events in the area than anyone else.

Other awards and accolades include:
   * The Austin Miller Co-op Hero Award
        for his extensive Cooperative Games work in the Pioneer
        Valley of Western Massachusetts
        awarded by: River Valley Co-op, Northampton MA, 2016
   * Entertainer of the Month
        awarded by: County Fairgrounds, U.S.A., June 2009  
   * Student Work Award
        awarded by: Bryn Athyn College, Bryn Athyn PA, 1975

TREVOR is the original founder of the Hats Off Performers Guild in 1993. Currently, an association of seven full-time performers and presenters living in Western Massachusetts, the Hats Off Performers Guild meets on a monthly basis to discuss business, practice and critique performance pieces, share success stories, troubleshoot difficulties, have FUN together, and much, much more including simply to enjoy each other's company. This group has been meeting for nearly 30 years now... I love these guys!
