Please list the most important or defining jobs of your career.
Animatronic performer for Ragdoll Productions as “Ooo”, one of three “Tombliboos,” in 20 episodes of “In the Night Garden”. The role entailed puppeteering, working in a full body suit with props in sets with various levels, slides, ladders and oversized furniture. Each performer chose and established individual character styles and movements. The role required multiple skills and considerable improvisation and imagination since many scenes were filmed against blue screen.
