Things are changing and stuff is happening!
I've gotten a lot done in the pandemic, but one thing I haven't made much progress on is updating this blog. There are still two or three YEARS of shows I need to update on here. But as always (pandemic or not) I'd rather be doing than reporting. And so I interrupt my backlogging catch-up process to bring current updates!

You gooooootta catch up on Creatures of Yes videos, which we've been releasing weekly! I'm now producing and co-writing as well as puppeteering, building new puppets and fabricating set pieces.

Right now I'm studying woodcarving with master puppeteer Bernd Ogrodnik. Toby and I are doing more work on The Comedy of Wizards and developing a new holiday show, A Krampus Carol. Here ends this disjointed post.
