CHOPS & Assoc. Live Animation

He started out serving ad agencies and large corporations with live performances in 1996 with live performances at trade shows, corporate meetings and corporate special events around the world. His work took him to South America frequently for product launches and he performed for HP in Beijing China.

His currently specialty is Virtual Yogi Berra, which he performs live in real time for sports conferences, trade shows and special events. HIs technology uses Respeecher’s technology to clone the voice of Yogi, and his software, 3D Digital Puppeteer (TM) allows him to animated the avatar in real time, using only a laptop computer and some AV equipment.
