|Four Questions with Industry Pioneers
In our efforts to chronicle the history of our industry, we could think of no better
way to further this endeavor than to interview industry pioneers and preserve their videos
for posterity. We have seen all too many industry veterans passing away these past several
years without a chronicle of their past and we would like to capture as many memories as
possible, especially from these pioneers in their own words.
We decided to ask each participant four questions:
1) How did you get into the business?
2) What is your greatest accomplishment?
3) What has been your biggest challenge?
4) How has the industry changed since you began your career?
The answers so far have been interesting and amusing, they open a window into the
history of the business, where we have come from and where we might be going in the eyes
of those who have been there.
Over the coming months and years, we will be interviewing more people, in both the fair
and carnival industries and adding them to our pages. If you have suggestions about who we
should interview or if you can put us in touch with an industry pioneer who would be
willing to be interviewed by us, please email us with the
