More About Me:
I'm a puppeteer living and working in Los Angeles, CA. I do shadow puppets, found objects, toy theater, overhead projector puppets, marionettes, rod puppets, finger puppets, sock puppets. I would like to learn ventriloquism.
My Company/Troupe/Group
Lynn Jeffries and I have been performing our new toy theater show together; just played the Heart of the Beast in MN and U of MD.

I took my shadow show THE MOTHER OF ALL ENEMIES to a puppet fest in Scotland this January, but I got deported. For the whole story (zzzzzzz), go to


and scroll down the blog.

We are also showing our toy theater film, Dante's Inferno. Warning: puppet sex, and lots of it!
Affiliations/Professional Organizations
I'm a proud member of AAA. Once they towed me from Maine to Vermont, and it cost 55 bucks.

Hey Paul! Wanted to check in on whether you still might be interested in submitting your toy theatre show to the 2009 National.

I enjoyed talking with you when you came to "Cinderella" at the Center.

Hey, Paul. It was good to meet you at the National fastival. I would say thanks for your performance, but it sucked worse than finding a clear view into the neighbors' window only to dscover a bathing Billy Ray Cyrus! Nice plan to have us all bussed out to another theater so we couldn't leave!
I actually had fun. Thanks for the good times.

Hi Paul a.k.a. Uncle Fatso,
Although we are not yet official hub friends (I haven't yet figured out how to invite anyone) I believe we are friends from 1981, as you still owe me money from back then. Speaking of money, I hope you got and cashed your check from the 2007 Rampage
If you invite me to be your friend, it is a good bet that I will accept. Speaking of the AAA (as in your profile) many people do not know that, in addition to being the Humor Consultant to the P of A, I am also the Humot Consultant to the AAA

I meant to say Humor Consultant to the AAA, NOT Humot Consultant. I turned down that position since I didn't know what the hell it was.

No problem, Paul. I totally understand the financial straits we're all in. Let's plan to get you here in 2011!!!

Hope to see you soon...
