One of Rachel Jackson’s earliest memories involves throwing a tantrum over missing the Phyllis Diller episode of The Muppet Show (sorry Mom). The creator of the 2011 hit MANOS – The Hands of Felt, Rachel designs puppets and teaches puppetry workshops through Vox Fabuli Puppets.
Rachel began building puppets for people beside herself in 2008 and has since built puppets for Annex Theatre, Wing It, Pony World, and Everett Community College.
Recently, you may have seen Rachel puppeteering in Team of Heroes: Behind Closed Doors, Audrey & Nelson and Whedonesque Burlesque, and her acting sans puppet in CSI: Seattle – Crime Scene Improv.
When she's not engaged in puppet shenanigans, Rachel enjoys singing with band The Fog People, doing funny voices for web series The Scottish Ninjas and playing with KRAM Improv. In her spare time, she sleeps.
