RingMaster Feature: Steven Schwartz
DAT DAT DA DA DAT DA Da DAT DAAAAAA DAAAAAAHHHHHHH
Now that the Circus is in full swing now for just about 5 months now (I can not believe i just wrote that) we have decided to start to showcase all of the AMAZING talent that we have all over the world entertaining you. We will be looking for help from you to decide who we interview next. Actually it would be super fun to get questions from you as well. If you have any suggestions for who we should interview next week please put them in the comment section.
We chat with one of our original RingMasters who tells us about his love of the Circus and his goals for 2021! Ladies and Gentleman, The super popular Steven Schwartz!
Q: Introduce yourself, tell us a little about yourself and where you are from;
A: Hi Everyone! I’m like a peacock, you gotta let me fly! I’m an only child who was born in New York, raised in Georgia, college educated in Florida and then continued moving south to work in the Caribbean.
Q: Tell us about your Career so far and how it brought you to Majestic Circus;
A: I have always kept myself busy from a young age, participating in extracurricular activities at school and practicing my music. Once I graduated from The Florida State University, I ended up holding 5 very different part time jobs at the same time. I worked in Tallahassee for almost 2 years before interviewing and then landing a job with Carnival Cruise Line as part of the entertainment team. After 1 month onboard, I realized another passion of mine was entertaining guests face-to-face. I learned so much from my 8 years onboard ships from public behavior to leadership and more. The friends I made (who are like family to me now) are extremely smart and talented and I am glad that after 8 years, I can continue to do so virtually with our creation of Majestic Circus!
Q: Why did you join the Circus & what excites you the most about it?
A: This was an opportunity to be a part of something new and exciting. I would be able to gain invaluable experience while continuing to do what I love; to bring a one-of-a-kind experience to people.
Q: You have hosted both of our current experiences which is your favorite to host and why?
A: That is a tough question…but my favorite experience to host has to be KnowIt! Some of the questions and puzzles are easy when you have time to think, but when you have added stress (ie. only 30 seconds, deciding who on the team is correct, etc.) it changes the game! Watching people break out of their “shell” to compete and have fun really tops it, too.
Q: During December Majestic Circus hosted over 30 companies for various corporate experiences, do you have any standout moments during all of those bookings?
A: I remember being one of many RingMasters to host an IT company. Now, I pride myself on helping people let loose and have fun. I was told it would be tough to get the employees to participate, so I took that as a challenge. After the event, so many employees said “I’ve never seen that person move so fast and I’ve worked with them for over 10 years!” We were able to break down barriers between coworkers which they didn’t even know existed. Now they will be able to share that experience and look back on the fun they had.
Q: What would you say to someone who hasn’t tried Majestic Circus yet?
A: I’d say something along the lines of…”WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?” This world is ever changing and recent times have shown how tough it is to have fun while also connecting with friends and family. Majestic Circus provides the opportunity for families, friends and colleagues to laugh and have fun together.
Q: Who is Majestic Circus for?
A: Literally everyone! Friends, family, co-workers, young, old, tall, short, it doesn’t matter! I have hosted over 40 events at this point and I am still having fun…even though I know the answers lol.
Q: When you imagine Majestic Circus in 5 years time what do you envisage?
A: I envision Majestic Circus being a top tier entertainment experience company. We will be able to expand and even host live events in certain cities, if needed.
Q: During the last 12 months throughout the world people have made a “Zoom mistake” – can you share with us one of yours?
A: I had a virtual background on and we were about to start a meeting and I needed to change my shirt. Well, I thought I was out of the frame when I started changing but everyone could still see me! I didn’t hear them trying to warn me because I just took off my headphones and placed them down, so there was no hope for me.
Q: Ok last question, finish the sentence – In 2021 I want to…
A: Own a car. I’ve driven countless rental cars and cars of family/friends, but I have never owned my own car. The time for this is 2021!
