Emmy award winner Jim Martin talks about his life journey, from puppeteering on The Great Space Coaster all the way to Sesame Street, and the twists and turns his life took along the way.

There Are No Straight Lines In Nature. Come hear 5 time Emmy award winning Director and puppeteer Jim Martin talk about his intriguing life journey, including his start on television's The Great Space Coaster, The Puzzle Place, and working on Sesame Street. Jim didn't start out wanting to be a puppeteer, but through the many twists and turns of his life, taking opportunities when possible, and with just a lot of luck, he's achieved outstanding success in his field, and worked with many of his own heroes. And he's not done yet. A great motivational speech, as well as a story of how sometimes the twists and turns in our lives are better than the straight lines we try to take.
