Creative TV Producer/Director looking for a new opportunity. I am not afraid of challenges or trying new things. I'm a New Orleanian, transcendental meditator, music/concert lover, hip hop song-writer raised by an 808, disabled dog owner, veterinary technician and writer with a southern accent. I love to laugh and/or make people laugh. I have a lot of books and I haven't read them all. I'm afraid of sharks and robot sharks. Cadbury Mini Eggs have the ability to turn me into Gollum where I hold them close in a dark room calling them, "My Precious."

Don’t let my experience working with puppets frighten you! I work with real people too! I have worked with children, animals, celebrities, politicians, athletes, and commoners like myself.
