If you are looking for something unique for your event, you've found it! My large Muppet style puppets have been entertaining people locally and nationally since 1992. I do a musical/comedy puppet act using puppets that were built by a former performer for the Muppets. I can also do walkarounds, my sassy fox Vixie loves to interact with people, and she loves having her picture taken! Instead of a balloon animal or a facepaint that will be forgotten in a day or two, why not provide a memory that will last a lifetime?

I have been performing puppets professionally since 1992. I have performed shows and taught workshops both nationally and overseas. My setup is minimal, making me easy to fit into nearly any venue. I typically perform for 20-30 minutes, having my puppets lip sync to fun upbeat songs, as well as a bit of comedy tossed in. Audiences love watching the puppets, and they come to think the puppets are really singing and talking. Besides the standard show, I can theme shows for holidays, my Christmas shows are always popular. I also offer walkaround services, where I walk around the event with different puppets and have them interact with the audience. These are popular, as people love seeing the puppets up close and having photos taken with them.
I was born and raised right here in Peoria, and have lived here nearly all my life. I have a lifelong interest in puppetry, and have had several puppets custom built over the years, with more planned in the future. I have worked with several former Muppet performers, and have also taught puppetry workshops at conventions nationwide.
