Full time entertainer using puppets, magic and ventriloquism in presenting educational programs to schools and libraries.
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
Watching early television, when there was a lot of great puppeteers on TV. Burr Tillstrum, Paul Ashley, Hope & Morey Bunin, Bil Baird. I grew up watching the best puppeteers perform in my living room. Started making puppets at age seven and never stopped.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
My main influence had to be Bil Baird, I watched everything he did on TV, and latter attended his theater in New York City. Had the opportunity to study with him and worked briefly in his shop.
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
I never wanted to be a puppet, always a puppeteer.
