Press & Interviews:

 

Bunny Love

In 2018, I was commissioned by Heather Henson's Handmade Puppet Dreams Film Series to adapt one of my live acts, Bunny Love, into a short film.

Bunny Love became a silent film inspired by classic comedies of the 1920's and, serendipitously, premiered at the Charlie Chaplin screening room at The Jim Henson Company lot in May of 2019.

 

Bunny Love won the "Best Film" award at the 2019 National Puppetry Festival and is available on Amazon Prime.

 

 

Moving Pictures

In 2019 I received a Jim Henson Foundation grant to develop my solo show, Moving Pictures.

Moving Pictures is a story of a lady-gone-nuts over a broom lover, as one does. I used old music and vintage stylings to set the tone for the tale of a neglected 1950's housewife.
