The story of Lao Alovus is an interesting one.  For many years he was a roommate with Matt Ritter.  He seemed fascinated with top spinning for a while and invented a number of tricks including the corkscrew.  But somewhere along the line he seemed to lose interest in top spinning, although he has stayed active in the juggling world.  For years he showed up at the Groundhog Day Juggling Festival in Atlanta and he taught a circus arts class at the school where he teaches.  I just looked him up in Google and see he still teaches.  There is also a Facebook page for him out there.  Maybe some others could share some inside information on him?

I keep up with Lao on Facebook. A long term relationship ended a while back, he seems to be in a better place.

Matt Ritter just got married!  The wedding photos are beautiful.

Congrats Matt!
If there is a wedding photo with at top, it could be entered in this year's photo contest (no entries yet) as he is a member of the forum (but last active over 1 year ago).
