I collaborate on different puppet projects with other artists since I moved to Portland Oregon. I come from a family full of puppeteers so I can say that I have been playing with puppets since I was a little kid and I continue to do so. 

I  teach puppet making workshops for kids, young and adults. Please reach out if you are interested in hosting one.

Since pandemia started and live performances were not possible I had not work on any new projects. We were about to present a new play with Slow Blink Puppet Collective on the Spring Equinox weekend of 2020 and we had to cancel the show.

I have been part of Winter Solstice Puppet Collective since 2006, together we create a puppet show every winter as a gift to our community.

I’m also part  of Paper Eclipse Puppet Company, we started working on 2010 and we mostly create shadow puppets performances. You can check some of Paper Eclipse ‘s performances on You Tube but a lot of the spirit gets lost on the recorded of a live show;  A shadow of a forestSpring is in the air and Deconstruction vs demolition are some of the shows that you can see on You Tube. Our company didn’t perform in a while (since 2018) but we might do some new things together in the future.
