One of the core components in all of my work is appealing to the inner-child - creating for the sake of fun and glee rather than a larger purpose or conceptual goal. Puppetry, an art form I have been inspired by and invested in from an early age, plays right into that notion and quickly became an integral piece of my artistic puzzle.
Here is a sample of the puppets I've built and performed.

Spotlight: U R da 1
I designed and built seven original puppet characters for U R da 1, a funk-musical short film as part of the Baltimore Rock Opera's 'Puppet Six-Pack.' Another page with more information about the project is coming soon.
Spotlight: Sam Squatch
The character of Sam Squatch was built for one of my GFA classes at MICA. I designed Sam as a way for me to expand upon my established puppet building techniques while also incorporating new methods of patterning, building, and design.
Spotlight: The Nepi clown
During the Summer of 2019, I participated in the New England Puppet Intensive in North Adams, MA, a program in which participants dove deeper into sculpting, mold-making, and casting processes, exploring the interchange between performance and design. The result of the week-long intensive, a vaudeville-style clown, is displayed here.
