Born in England, Twist spent his childhood fascinated by magic and the circus. He spent his earlier years performing in Schools, Churches and Festivals all over England and Wales. Growing up between a small town in the valleys of Wales and the big city of London Twist developed a unique outlook on life. At a young age Twist's teacher identified him as the class clown that everybody loved; if he only knew then what Twist would grow up to become.

As a teenager Twist's family moved to the southwest coast of England, known as the English Rivera, where Twist learned the basics of street performing, honing his skills while performing infront of hundreds of people in the streets, clubs and at parades.

Twist was then asked to try out and join an International Circus live on national Television before traveling through Europe.

In his Mid-twenties Twist met the Love of his life, an American, waiting for a plane in Gatwick Airport London. The two of them dated between the countries before Twist moved to her home town in North Carolina and later on that year they were married in Tennessee.

Since moving to America Twist has become a household name in Western North Carolina, first performing at local restaurants and festivals then working at North Carolinas oldest theme park Tweetsie Railroad, and then Entertaining the Carolina Panthers Fans at all of their home games and special events in North and South Carolina.
