If you could have a theme song that played every time you walked into a room, what would it be and why?

"Chameleon", by Maynard Ferguson.


Oh, this, that, and a lot of the other thing....

Went to Nebraska U. for a year and a half (in the Cornhusker Marching Band for two seasons!) then moved to FL to live with the 'rents before attending U. of S. Florida/Tampa as a business, then music, major/voice performance.

Did a shload of community theater before finally landing a gig at Disney ("Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular") for the summer of '90, then a lateral move to Universal Studios ("Ghostbusters", "Blues Brothers" and other various special events) for another two years before I made the move to Gurnee, IL in '93, working at Six Flags/Great America ("Batman Stunt Spectacular") then moving to Chicago proper in late '94.

Been a weird ride since then; various customer service-type jobs, tourguide for Chicago Trolley and Wendella Sightseeing Boat Tours among other things such as working as an extra in a few shot-in-Chicago Hollywood films in the mid-2000s.

Currently working at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Visitor Services, and loving it.

My mother, Barbara, passed away after a three-year bout with cancer in 2007 but Dad will be 85 this year, still kickin' it even after a quad bypass and a defib installation a few years ago. He still does the Ghoulardifests in Cleveland, so yeah, he gets back once in a while.

My sisters Teri and Tricia have been married for 36 and 21 years, respectively, to a pair of good-to-have-as-bros-in-law guys and are doing fine in Lavergne, TN and Kent, WA, also respectively.

Hair shorter, grayer, and look at those baggy eyes! At least I'm smiling about it....

A screen capture of a character I portrayed, Dr. Brixtus, in a local Chicago musician's video called "Astrolux" by Evet Socrates.
