Experienced actor, puppeteer, storyteller
At 65, I have over 50 years experience as an actor, puppeteer, storyteller, and vooice over talent. I have a great many "voices" which have been perfected as a reuslt of performing live and with memorized or improvised lines. I do ladies, men, grouchy men, silly voices. shrill piercing voices, dull air-filled voices. One limitation that I cannot sing, but my voice is powerful and experienced. You can go to Youtube, and watch THE RABBIT LOSES HIS EAR PUPPET SHOW by Marc Kohler. This was taped on June 1st, and gives you an excellent opportunity to hear my voices in action. I have BA in English Honors from Brown University and three years graduate work in Dramatic Literature and Creative Writing, so I can lend an educated tone to any piece, as well as a wacky side.
I also have experience in writing copy, and performing puppet commercials. You can see all of my current work at my website, and there you will see some of the costumes that my partner, Fran Slade, and I wear for storytelling. If you want to see my writing, you can go to progressiveliberaltruths.blogspot.com. Thanks for reading my Profile
