Big Bird

<=== There I am. That's right....that is me.

Since the summer of 1995, I have worked at a little theme park called Sesame Place, which is located just outside of north-east Philadelphia. I was promoted, if you want to call it that, to Big Bird in 1997 and have loved it since day one.

The Cast

<=== A very fun yet sad day. This was my last cast ever. I picked the best people to share my last day with and they were not a let down.


<=== Yet another picture from my last day. This was taken right before my last parade. Normally I would have been in Big Bird, Cookie Monster or Telly Monster but Steve and myself were permitted to be out of costume dancers because it was my last day.


<=== No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. Steve and I are in poodle skirts. We thought that it would be funny to play a trick on Diane, our manager. We went up to the parade shed saying that we couldn't find the jeans and that we wouldn't mind wearing the skirts in front of over 5,000 people. Diane didn't buy it. Instead she wanted a picture with us. On the other hand, Lauran, our assistant manager, almost had a heart attack.
