Years at Objectify:
About Mickey Khoury:
Hi, I’m Mickey! I spin things. A lot. I think that’s why I’m here…
Oh, you need a story…. Well, almost 9 years ago some dude showed me how to play with a fire stick and now I’m here.
Ugh, you need MOAR? Okaaaaay. In that 9 years, the first 5 were spent jumping around learning that there is, in fact, a limit to how fast you can spin in circles when spinning a staff. After getting bored of that (because I had no idea how to improve) I began messing with poi and bought myself some. Then, down at the beach one night, some new friends recognised that I wasn’t hands-down derpy with the poi’s, and decided to hurt my brain in a way I’ve never found so pleasurable. Tech. Once I realised there was a world of science in spinning and didn’t think it could get any better, I tagged along to Spinfest (2013) and I was left to pick my own jaw back up off the floor. Here I learned dragonstaff from two of my favourite geeks, and it all went crazy from there. Now you can find me either making props for people, spinning props for/with people, or yelling at people on the sideline when they do crappy tricks that I know they can do better – because I love them, of course.
Can I go now? Sweet. Cya there!
