The result of this diligence is Bad Azz, the premiere male pole dancer in the United States. He has been featured on the Dr's Show. During this notable segment, the cast of The Doctors joked about men getting involved on the pole, and Bad Azz played the role a regular audience member challenged to try a trick or two. He dazzled their broad viewing audience with a skillful performance. He has been a recurring guest on the Jerry Springer Show, again featured as a gifted anomaly to the pole dancing community. He has also appeared on ABC Family, MTV, TruTV, and his own series of pole instructional videos, and countless brief television appearances and interviews.
To date, he has won 1st Place in the Bad Kitty Spins and Tricks, 3rd as the American Male Pole Dance Champion NYC, and 2013 North American " Elite" Pole Dance Champion. He has garnered the sponsorship of top pole companies, namely Mighty Grip, Honey's Artistic Pot, and Kelly Maglia Cotour. To watch Bad Azz perform is to understand that the pole is his alter ego. His credo is: "One can only become an Artist after acknowledging and knowing your true self." Hence, what Bad Azz knows he is also able to effectively teach and inspire in others. Bad Azz is also a world-celebrated pole clinician, respected by his male and female peers. From Australia to Japan, from Canada to Mexico, Europe and all throughout the United States, Bad Azz is a talent without boundaries, with a performance charisma that is worthy of any onlooker's awe.
