He was a juggler before he became a game designer. There are also some videos, which I've never watched, but I've heard good things about Contact Juggling parts 1 and 2 by Greg Maldonado.

Here are some good suppliers of juggling equipment. Look in the balls or acrylic balls section for contact juggling balls, and in the books and videos section for instructional materials:

Can you please tell me where I can get a ball like that?  Is this
