My puppetry work has appeared on a CBS televised special,
in New York at La MaMa, St. Ann’s Warehouse, The Tank and Brooklyn Academy of Music,
at several Puppeteers of America National Festivals,
and regionally at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center,

I recently toured to Grand Rapids, MI and Orlando, FL to be the puppet captain for The Jane Henson Nativity Story Live.

Atlanta’s 7 Stages Theatre’s Curious (Literary) Encounters featured a piece I developed, also with Brandi Hoofnagle, called Bound To Travel.
The interactive, intimate experience inspired by the NEA’s The Big Read premiered Oct. 1-4.

I recently developed, along with Brandi Hoofnagle, a project for Atlanta’s Art on the BeltLine called SPOKEn STORIES, which premiered Sept. 13, 19 & 20.

My latest project is called DEPICT-O-MAT and soon it will be available for appearances at events.
