Mary Robinette Kowal
Mary Robinette Kowal has supported herself as a professional puppeteer since 1989. During that time she has taught on the education staffs of the two largest puppet theatres in the United States, as well as performing for the Center for Puppetry Arts, Jim Henson Pictures and her own company, Other Hand Productions. Her work has been honored with an UNIMA Citation of Excellence, the highest award an American puppeteer can achieve. Her firm commitment to the art of puppetry has led her to offer internships and host a website about being a professional puppeteer www.otherhandproductions.com
Chito Lapena is president of Thundergnome Industries/Streamspire Multimedia www.thundergnome.com. He claims to have been raised by puppets and manages mulat.org, a US-based organization for the children's puppet theater, Teatrong Mulat of the Philippines. Mulat's mission is to raise funds for the children's theater in the Philippines as well as funds for bringing children's theater whose programs promote international relations to children's hospitals and schools.
"Professor" Will Stackman is the Boston Area's senior Punchman, and as an early member of the now moribund Boston Computer Society has a serious computer habit as well. There's a page on the BAGOP website about the former.
He also writes theatre (including puppetry) reviews for AisleSay.com and has just started a blog "And Then I Saw..." as an adjunct. As a Mac (PPC) user and one of the AMIGA faithful he can be found monthly on the third Sunday, April to October at the MIT Amateur Radio Flea Market/Swap Meet, with a Vanagon full of aged equipment renewing old acquaintances.
"That's the way to do it!"
