Nothing Short Of...

In the autumn of 1998, a profound tragedy echoed through a small Michigan farming town and twisted the well laid plans of a young prodigy in strange and inspired ways.

Far and away in the chilling northern reaches of Michigan farm country lived 16-year-old Andy Phelps: an anomalous prodigy with a colorful resume. Andy juggled knives and fire for mass audiences, hand-made wood furnishings, thundered his motorcycle through the Midwest, captained his hockey team to a State Championship, and taught himself to unicycle and fire-breathe...all before turning seventeen. But late one autumn morning in 1998, Andy broke his neck and consequently lost the use of his hands and legs. Over a decade later, what should have been the last chapter in the life of a fabled prodigy became the first page of a new story, where against all odds he became the only known quadriplegic in an unexpected profession.

The process of bringing Juggle & Cut to life was one of the most challenging and ultimately rewarding projects I've ever been apart of; I hope you receive as much from hearing Andy's story as I did while assembling it. Many thanks to Andy's brother David Phelps, Eric Machiela, Eric Johnson, Wlad Marhulets, Adam Burd, Chad Terpstra, Seth Herman, and all of our incredibly generous Kickstarter supporters. We wouldn't be here now without every one of you.
