WESTON CHANDLER LONG was born and raised in Connecticut and currently resides in New York City. Weston has been a performer for almost all of his life, acting in his first community theater production after a doomed attempt playing soccer at age five. Around that same time, he also developed an interest in puppetry. He was personally mentored in puppetry starting at age seven by dear friend and Sesame Street legend, the late Caroll Spinney. He has also received formal training in the craft from puppetry greats John Tartaglia, Matt Vogel, Martin P. Robinson, and Peter Linz, among others.
Weston is a proud member of Actor's Equity Association and currently is a puppetry teacher at the Professional Performing Arts School in Manhattan. He is a lifelong fan of Saturday Night Live, dog enthusiast, middle child, vertically-enhanced individual, sitcom junkie, and frequent baker.
