"Clifford the Big Red Dog"

I’ve officially joined the new Paramount Films live action feature film of “Clifford the Big Red Dog”! This will be my first feature film and I’m excited for all I’m going to learn.

Me and one other puppeteer will be performing the reference puppetry for Clifford on set. Because Clifford will be animated in to the movie later, we will be representing Clifford for the entirety of the filming, puppeteering a to-scale Clifford puppet built by Creature Effects.

It shall be a summer full of NYC adventures!

Moon and Me is on TV!

I’m so excited to announce that “Moon and Me” has finally premiered all over the world! Including in the USA!

There are 25 episodes out already and it’s been a joy to watch them and remember all the work and laughs that went in to bringing this wee characters to life. I’m particularly proud of the episode, “Let’s Have a Picnic” which is the first of the four episodes I was puppet captain for. If you can give it a wacth. You’ll be charmed!

The return of Ulisse to Palermo!

We’re back at it! “Il Ritorno D’Ulisse” heads to Palermo, Italy to start our nearly three month tour around Italy and France. I’m excited to gather once again with this diverse group of artists from all around the world to bring this opera back to life.

I’m also fortunate to get some traveling in on my own while in Europe. I’ll be seeing you again soon NYC!

Clowning Around!

What a week! After a holiday season of cheer and travel I decided to jump back in to some rigorous performing by taking a week long workshop with the clown supreme professor of silly himself, Christopher Bayes.

We spent the week opening up to wonder and chaos. I’ve taken classes with teachers who come from the Bayes school of thought but never with the man himself.

It was a joy and a challenge I’m so grateful to have had this chance to practice living in my happy body alongside a bunch of weirdos. If you don’t know Chris’ work check out his work at the Funny School of Good Acting

Back to Mettawee

Mettawee is back upstate! We’re eating ice cream, doing scratch offs, taking dips in the Battenkill River, and making a play!

This year’s production is of an older Mettawee production “The Ringdoves” with an updated script. We’ll spend several weeks workshopping the production with the aim of doing a tour next summer. It’s always a treat to be making and eating and basking in the country life with this company!

The Big Umbrella Festival

I just spent a wonderful week as a participant in the Professional Development workshop with Lincoln Center’s Big Umbrella Festival.

The Festival is a brand new festival that presents work from around the world created specifically for children on the autism spectrum and their families. There were companies from NYC, England, and Australia all presenting work side by side.

I was lucky to be chosen to participate in the artist professional development. The group was made up of folks from all around the world, all with a passion for creating work for neuro-diverse audiences. It was a wonderful week of viewing, making, thinking, and discussing. I definitely have walked away from the week with a massive amount to consider when making work for any type of audience!
