I knew I needed a website not long after I started performing. It was the most affordable, effective way to put myself (and my puppets) in the public eye.
With help from my friends at GoDaddy, I now have a website perfect for booking shows and opening myself up to the world. I reach people I’d never have met otherwise, and it lets me get back to what I love most – puppets!
In my workshop, craft and creativity collide with magical results. The joy of puppet-making begins with a drawing that's ready to pop off the page, and then quickly moves to two little eyes peering back at me. The process doesn't end until I have a creature ready to enter the world with a smile.
Come look around my studio, then join me for my how-to puppet-workshop series. Making friends is sweet and nice. Making friends out of foam and fleece is outrageous fun!

Trading the field of engineering for the enchanting world of puppetry was an easy decision for me.
Yes, I may have manufactured a whopping 65 million gallons of chilled water over my 18-year career operating large tonnage refrigeration machinery.
But…it’s puppets and their interaction with children that have been my real love since childhood. From the days of my father animating my favorite teddy bear to the fun-filled magic of my puppet shows today, infectious laughter and energetic conversations between children and puppets are pure passion for me.
