Greetings Smirkus Fans!
I am pleased to welcome you to the brand-new Circus Smirkus blog! This site will provide frequent updates from the road to fill you in on current events from the 2011 Circus Smirkus Big Top Tour.
Before we get started, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Alex Zaprudsky and I am the public relations and communication intern here at Circus Smirkus. I attend The University of Iowa majoring in Communication Studies. Upon graduating, I plan to work in public relations for a circus. My very loving and supporting family (Mom, Naum, and Hannah) has allowed me to travel here and I greatly miss them, but I am ready to go on the ride of my life!
I recently finished a Public Relations and Marketing internship with the American Youth Circus Organization which opened the door to my current position. I am thrilled to have been selected and can’t wait to explore New England (this is my first time to this part of the country, and I have been told that I will get to know it well!). It has always been my dream to join a circus, and now that dream has come true…and with a very enthusiastic and talented group, I might add.
See you down the road!
Tour Communications Intern
