Roman was born in 1991 in the small city of Zlín in the Czech Republic. During his studies in high school, he discovered juggling and photography. This quickly became his passion, and soon Roman was practicing traditional juggling with balls, clubs & rings every day for many years. At the same time, he was studying photography & light and making it his primary job.
In 2010, Roman met a group of fire & light performers and was immediately fascinated by this new art form. From that day on, he started practicing with staff, learning group choreographies, and quickly diving more into the world of professional flow artists. In upcoming years he slowly take over the leading role in this group and used all his entrepreneurial skills to push the boundaries yet again.
During his performance in Qatar in 2015, he met Jay Firecat who changed his life more than they could imagine. Jay introduced him to the world of object manipulation and taught him the basics of buugeng. This changed the course of Roman’s life. He slowly but surely transferred from traditional tossing juggler to learning more about the world of buugeng.

I started juggling in 2009, with a flower stick, and soon after picked up other props like balls, clubs, and rings. I discovered buugeng in 2015.
