Along with acting and directing, I also build puppets. I have designed and created original puppets for “Weirdos”, “The Annoyance Christmas Pageant”, “It Came from Kentucky” as well as a production of “Purple Rain: The Musical” at the Neo Futurarium.
If you’d like to see several of these characters in action, head over the Videos page of the website!

“The Weirdos of Oz” : a fun take on “The Wizard of Oz” in its many incarnations. I’d already built the Scarecrow for my “Over the Rainbow Video” and am using Gibson the Westie as Toto. The following are pictures from opening day, taken by Molly Kom
