I'm a sculptor and model-maker fabricating all kinds of puppets, masks, and props for various different industries. Along side working as freelance I also teach classes in puppet fabrication here in London. When possible I create multi-disciplinary performances with collaborators in the United States and in France. Within these events I am able to experiment more with my other interest in live music, photography, and video. Have a look at my website to see some of things I've worked on!: www.mattjacksonstudios.com

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Never hosted 'officially' but have always had friends and friends-of-friends kindly stay with me wherever I've lived.
In 2010 I participated in a butoh-dance workshop in Toulouse, France and stayed with a young lovely couple. They opened their quaint apartment to me and showed me around to their local markets and pubs, meeting their endearing friends. Such a great experience!
sculpting, drawing, writing, reading, having a drink by the canal, wandering, exploring new cities, discovering new natures, being with people who inspire me...
