Above is a glimpse into a rehearsal of Clowny's song.  I am operating the head and body, while lip syncing to Aubrey's voice.  Thanks to Paul Rudolph for the video!

In January 2018, I joined Martin P. Robinson and his chosen collaborators for a two-week residency at the O'Neill Theatre Center.  As a puppeteer, I operated a stand-alone rod puppet and the Right Hand of Pumpky (3). I was the Lead Puppeteer (Head and Body) on Clowny and controlled the lip-sync and facial mechanisms.  I love BIG puppets! (Audrey II was my first puppeteering gig in high school.) I was thrilled to get the chance to operate a puppet three times my size under the direction of Martin (creator of Audrey II).

I also choreographed a few musical numbers, as well as an apache dance style sequence.
