Relationship to Puppetry
I am a local puppeteer in my hometown and I have been interested in puppetry my whole life.
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
The first thing that got me interested in puppetry was the Muppets. Although I'll watch almost anything envolving puppetry. I would watch as many puppet shows as I could on PBS. Plus I've been doing basic hand manipulation since I was 2 1/2.
