  • Head Shot

    “I’ll need a head shot.” The editor informed me. Inwardly cringing, a parade of photographic nightmares paraded before my Mind’s Eye. The Eye closed in horror. In addition to nearly requiring a warning label due to my coordination anomalies, I am absolutely, totally, completely, unapologetically and forevermore unphotogenic. It would appear that I am both physically and facially awkward. In short, I put the bomb in photobomb.

Basically a super star coach!
