Filipino-American Daniel Darwin aka: ASTROBOY is a largely self-taught fire hula-hooper who first learned this flow/movement art in Paris, France in 2008.


He then became part of The Gyronauts, a New York City-based performing troupe before moving back to Manila in 2011, where he started teaching hooping in partnership with Planet Zips, which led to the growth of the local hooping subculture.

His most notable hooping achievement was becoming the grand champion of TV show Talentadong Pinoy back in 2012. He continues to perform for corporate gigs, festivals and other artist collaborations.
