Who is Zippy?
Balloon Artist – Phoenix, AZ
Hello and Welcome – My name is Jerry “Zippy” Gibbens and I’m a Professional Balloon Artist / Entertainer residing in Gilbert, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. Zippy currently owns and operates Zippy Entertainment.
I bet you are asking, how did you get the name of Zippy? Zippy enjoys having fun and most importantly turning frowns upside down by being a professional Balloon Artist/Entertainer. Well, one day working on a Christmas float with the local clown troupe located in Phoenix, Arizona, Zippy was in charge of handing out zip ties to people attaching things to the floats. He was Zipping here and Zipping there helping everyone. They all started calling him Zippy. Everyone stopped and said “That’s it! That is your balloon entertainer name, Zippy”. Now, you know how Zippy’s name was created in order to bring ton of smiles to all and create memories to last a life time with his balloon creations.
Being a balloons twister/Entertainer has been a dream of mine since I was a child and my parents took me to our state fair in my hometown of Albuquerque, NM. After listening to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, Zippy has been following his heart and passion to make his dreams come true, to put smiles on people’s faces with his balloon twisting creations.
There are a lot of great balloon artists out there and we all learn and help each other. However, Zippy has a level one background clearance card and strives to set a higher standard of professionalism in the balloon industry.
Zippy also enjoys parachuting, scuba diving, riding horses, watching live entertainers, achieving goals and traveling the world. Zippy supports the Armed Services Veterans to include being a volunteer Veteran Liaison at a Local News Channel in Phoenix, Arizona since Zippy is also a veteran; please thank them for their service; the next time you see them and give them a balloon created by Zippy.
“Let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.”
