“This is me, when I was totally obsessed with Hanson. I was 11 years old and I had to get a special permission note from my mom so I could show off my beloveds in the photograph.”

Skater Girl

“This was the gem of my high school senior picture portfolio. At the time, the effect was cutting edge. Now I like to tell my kids that I had to skate really fast to look that dumb.”

First Date

This is me on my very first date. The lovely young lady in the photo took pity on me and said ‘yes’ when I invited her to the 1987 Los Fresnos, Texas High School Homecoming Game. (We were in 7th grade.) As you can tell, I’m REALLY happy to be on a date.

Backstage With Brunhilda

“From 2005. I had just concluded my mesmerizing performance as Brunhilda. Dad was going through his hair growing phase, which turned him into a hippie Benjamin Franklin. Mom was also going through a phase with her hair. And my sister was so excited to be at my 8th grade play that she couldn’t even keep her eyes open.”
