While mesmerizing and stunning his audience with his artistry and skill, he uses the tools of physical theater, storytelling, juggling and comedy to support his compelling and powerful messages.

He has a bachelor’s degree in engineering, an associate’sdegree of arts in Biblical studies and is a license International Church of the Foursquare Gospel minister. He has performedin churches, schools, conferences and other venues for the past 12 years throughout the United States and Europe. The publicis encouraged to attend Cicoff ‘s performance.
