Beginning again, after a long hiatus. I am still in the novice stage in a lot of ways. I have done some gigs and a puppet slam over the years and am resuming puppetry, now that I am retired. Have attended the Great Lakes Region Potlatch at Pokagon several times.
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
Bil Baird and a lot of television puppetry (Howdy Doody, Burr Tilstrom, Rootie Katzooty, Foudini and Pinhead), plus lots of puppet books in the public libraries.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
Two, actually: Bil Baird and Jim Henson

More About Me:
Good to be back and in touch with my puppet pals again.
I have a bad sense of time (which might be a good thing), but I think I was last at the Potlatch about six years ago. I can't go this year because I will be visiting with family but hope to make it in the future.
