J (they/them) was born in New Jersey and raised in Virginia. Growing up they enjoyed performing live music videos of their favorite Beatles albums with their older sister. J attended York County School of the Arts in high school and received their BFA in Theatre Performance from Virginia Commonwealth University.
They have been living and working professionally as a puppeteer and maker of things in New York for ten years. Their infectious energy, rapier wit, fearless persona, adorably insane good looks (especially in any shade of purple) and modesty have kept them in demand since arriving in the Big Apple. J's one weakness is their constant uncontrollable urge to eat cinnamon buns and funnel cake in huge quantities. It's both awesome and nauseating.
When they aren't consuming pastries, performing shows or working on a project; they spend their time romanticizing over 1800s literature, stabbing up new needle felted creations, dancing like no one is watching, and making their partner laugh with one of their many random improvised songs.
They're pretty cool.
