Relationship to Puppetry
For the last 10 years I have tried to color outside the lines of what people expect when they think of puppets and puppeteers. I've performed thousands of street shows, created the popular underground TV puppet show, Dante's Place. I've produced/performed commissioned works for the stage, such as a Bunraku puppetry performance of Steinbecks "The Pearl" funded by UC Fullerton's Grand Central Art Center and the John Steinbeck society. The Death Show a puppet opera about life's final bow, funded in part by the City of Austin's Cultural arts dept And my personal favorite My all Puppet Burlesque show A night at Miss Mimi's funded by a performance art grant from the amazing folks at the Creative Capital Foundation.


In 2007 I, with the help of grant money and generous donations from Steve Spencer, formed the Non Profit theater troupe, and Outreach Program Geppetto Dreams Puppet Company.

Throughout my career I have strived to pass my art on to the next generation, teaching workshops to both children and adults on puppet design construction and performance, creating an award winning workshop on designing puppets from recyclable and found items, and summer internship programs for at risk teens. Unfortunately in 2009 we, like many others of our kind, were hit hard by the economy and forced to close the art centers doors. Down but not out, I continue to perform in hopes of opening those doors again one day.
