I have worked in theatre, television and film for 38 years specializing in hand and animatronic puppetry, physical performance, voice over and directing of both live and animated material. With over 20 years with the Jim Henson Company I endeavour to bring both passion and quality to a project.

At present I am trying to break into the world of screen and radio writing and have written four radio and three film/tv spec scripts.
