I play Shoelaces the pigeon in this short film made for the Sparrow Film Festival by Evening Squire Productions. The film follows a young woman with social anxiety who discovers that sometimes the answer to all your problems is a puppet pigeon.


SHARK SUIT: THE MUSICAL

I play the voice of Ethan in this animated musical short. Will Ethan ever give up wearing his beloved shark suit? How much longer will Daphne wait for Ethan to shed his skin? What’s with Taichan’s one arm? Find out the answers to these questions in Shark Suit: The Musical! created by Stephen P. Neary.


LA RINASCITA GOES WEST

In the silent western I play Rustee Bukket the alcoholic puppeteer. Follow the long journey west as Anne and David look for the perfect spot to start their theater company. With a cast of characters including Rustee and a mysterious renegade by the name of Stallion Ropeburn the duo must make their way to Montana in search of the perfect artistic haven. Will they make it or will they be eaten by dinosaurs? Find out in “La Rinascita Goes West”

(Bonus fact, the film was edited by yours truly!)


In this clip from a live press event in Birmingham, AL, I operate the head of Joey as we interact with a real police horse
