Megrez Mosher grew up in the fairy tale Mosher and Sheldon Castles in downtown Fairhope, Alabama. She split her time climbing trees and exploring the wooded gullies behind the castles and dancing in her mother's dance studio, Creative Outlet Dance Center, and reading and writing in the library.
Mosher spent her teenage years traveling as much as possible, wanting to absorb as much information and explore the world in order to tell stories with an open heart and mind. After finishing high school out west, she attended Pacific University of Oregon to study poetry, and studied and worked and performed in the Department of Theatre and Dance. It was in Oregon where Mosher began to hone her art as a way to connect with others through shared learning and experience. 
After receiving her Bachelor's in Creative Writing: Poetry,  Mosher returned to Fairhope for a few years to teach at Creative Outlet Dance Center, as well as work in film production for local environmental concerns.
In 2011, Mosher moved to Brooklyn, New York. During her first two weeks of moving, she discovered Circus, and after one class she was asked to start performing in local venues and galleries. Circus arts became a total obsession, leading her to become a Certified Personal Trainer with ISSA, train at the famous Circus Warehouse,  become a 50 hr certified Aerial Yoga instructor with Om Factory NYC, and also co-found and co-produce The Gowanus Circus in Gowanus, Brooklyn. 
She performs with several groups including Modern Gypsies has performed for clients such as Google, TCU's Frogs for a Cure,  The Danger, BangOn NYC and Unicorn Meat. As a co-founder and producer of The Gowanus Circus, Mosher has worked in several historical warehouses in Brooklyn while flying from silks or spinning on her custom-made triangle during live sets by dj's like Moby & RJd2.
In 2015, Mosher began to put together the idea for Kudzu Aerial, in Fairhope, Alabama, with the intention of only teaching seasonally to introduce recreational circus arts to all. The studio grew quickly, and now Mosher is dedicated to the growth and expansion of Kudzu Aerial by continuing her fitness education, circus training, and growing her business. Since Kudzu Aerial opened in the fall of 2015, she has taught over 1,300 aerial classes.
In order to maintain a program that benefits all her students in body and mind, she has partnered with several medical professionals in the area as well as allied herself with the American Circus Educators and ISSA as well as bringing in guest artists and instructors from multiple circus backgrounds. 
When she is not in the studio, Megrez loves meditate, further her studies in poetry, philosophy and physiology, as well as write books in her spare time. One of her favorite pastimes is exploring, whether it be sailing, rock climbing, road tripping, or into the pages of a good book.

“Advanced circus arts might not be for everyone, but everyone can benefit from a little circus in their life. Circus arts teaches us to push our personal boundaries, learn more about ourselves, and provides a new perspective on life. Circus has taught me to embrace what I once thought as chaos and turn it into adventure.
I love sharing my experiences and I love watching others go on their own journey.”
— -Megrez R. Mosher, Founder of Kudzu
