I should be dead.

I really should be. I’ve had such an… “interesting” life shall we put it? So many times when I was younger I got to the point where I didn’t think I could take any more… but I did. And I grew past those depressing times. With the help from family, God and some really incredible friends.

Bullying back in my day was different from today. There was no “title”. There were no hotlines or programs focusing on getting help. You quietly got your ass kicked; lunch money stolen and the cruel words were spoken when no teachers were around. To say anything meant you got your ass kicked all over again. Or they would find an even weaker friend of yours and beat the crap out of them. Moral in being, you kept quiet.

I didn’t keep quiet. I sought revenge in unique ways. But that’s another blog and actually one of 3 books I’m writing. Another story for another time. This blog focuses on friends and one I’d like to honor in particular. Janet.

I was a very different child. I’m sure for those who know me from TV, live music shows, social media, that’s not a hard statement to swallow. Different got picked on and no matter how strong, cruel words, kids, teachers and life can get even the strongest down. I speak so many times on “choosing your friends wisely”. I think that is one of the biggest keys to success. But I never really go into detail about what that means to me.

I met Janet when I was in my teens. I was working at a recording studio trying to get noticed. Prince, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, The New Power Generation, Janet Jackson, George Clinton, Shelia E and The Family were just a few artists on that block where I was paying my dues. I worked at the studio there as a photographer, costume designer and general shelper. (Toilet cleaner)

I tried to get everyone’s attention with my cool creations. Hoping maybe they would ask more… dig deeper. “I can sing too ay know” was always JUST on the TIP of my tongue… But usually I would just show my costumes I made for all the bands in the Minneapolis Scene. At least I had a job. I was around all the stars…

One day one of the engineers had his girl friend come by. Everyone made a huge stink about “Janet.” Ohhhhh JANET sews, JANET paints, and JANET does Upholstery… Bla bla frickey da… Who WAS this chick anyway? After all, “I” did that stuff too damn it!

In walked this cute blond chick, about my size, stature, sh!t… she looked a LOT like ME! She had on a hat she made and a jacket she painted. She might as well have just walked out of a video of Prince’s “Raspberry Beret” video because this chick had chic style coming out of her arse!

I sneered. Competition… Hmphh.

The more I was around her the more angry I got. This chick was really cool. My speed. Up my alley…

I said something to the studio manager about how I wanted to get her number. Maybe I wanted to go “thrifting” with her sometime. NO! I was told! That would be a “conflict of interest” because she dates a co-worker? WTF… not cool. I wasn’t allowed to even talk to her. My controlling boss and EX really had a hold of me, my finances, and my career. I felt really trapped. And didn’t see the foreshadowing that it would get even worse with the control he’d have over me. It would turn into abuse, depression and over all YUK…

One day in the studio Karl my co-worker was crying. “What’s wrong I said?” Janet left me he whimpered. I gave him a hug, but as I held him, trying to give some consoling, I caught a reflection of myself in the vocal booth glass. There was an expression of some diabolical mastermind as my eyes widened with a newfound plan… “I must get Janet’s number now. For NOW we can hang out!”

That’s all I cared about. I MUST be friends with this COOL chick. And from the next day forward, Janet was one of my best friends. She still is. She has saved my life so many times with her care, concern, attitude, help, support and her non-judgmental attitude towards me.

I’ve done things that you just don’t tell people about. They would all pass judgment. Not Janet. She accepted me as I was. She would say helpful and kind things to let me know my decisions would not be “hers” but that I needed to figure things out on my own. She’d give me a kind and unconditional guidance.

She has helped me through more abusive relationships, situations. Picking my a$$ up off the ground with no commentary. Just help. I already knew I screwed up. Like a kid getting thrown into jail, having a parent come bail them out… they don’t need a lecture. Chances are, they know what they did. Tough love doesn’t always work for the already broken. Sometimes someone needs to know they are loved and cared about.

Janet didn’t always say, “I love you.” In fact for years, I don’t think she ever said it verbally. But she didn’t need to. She was always there.

I remember trying to get a record deal. The producer I worked with was abusive. He pawned me off to another. The new one saw potential. Janet was visiting Hollywood, and sitting with me in the dark vocal booth. I wrote a new song unbeknownst to the old producer and new one was cutting it. Old producer walked in, didn’t see Janet, or me heard the cut and smiled. “Now THIS chick can sing!” He proclaimed… He never knew it was I on that cut. But Janet was there. She was in that vocal booth and saw. Great friends always see what others can’t in you.


Great friends also stand by your side. I remember my dad holding up an iPad, showing my mom with a blank stare looking into the distance. 
I canceled my shows and got on a plane. I knew this was it. I asked my best friend to pick me up at the airport and to be with me. “I’m hosting a theme party she said. My house will be filled with people dressed crazily, but I will come.” I told her not to. I’d figure something else out. But she insisted. I told her the only way was if she stayed in her costume.

I cried the whole day of travel. But I knew my best friend would see this chapter through with me. I could go to my mother’s house with her by my side. I waited. Where was she? A strange and creepy woman stood in front of me, silently beckoning me to come with her. WTF I thought? You pervert!  Get away from me. I was looking for Janet. The woman came closer, my feathers ruffled. “It’s me stupid,” she said laughing. “Janet?” I said. I laughed so hard I cried and she drove me to say goodbye to my mother. Even at my darkest hour, she was there.



I think back to a guy wanting to date me. He made some asshole comment about, “I can see we’d already fight on that topic…” To which I replied, well buddy, you won’t even get the chance for a fight. Because I don’t fight with anyone. I don’t raise my voice or argue. My friends are the most precious things I could ever have in my life. They have earned that title and I don’t take it lightly. I don’t throw around “I love you’s” and I would take a bullet for my  friends. They are tried and true. And to this day, I have NEVER had an unpleasant word with any of them. True adoration is all that comes to mind when I think of my friends. I cherish them.

Today, all I ask is that you take a moment to think of the friends in your life. A best friend, someone who has been there for you. Call them. Thank them. Reach out for no other reason that to say, “I love you.” If that’s too weird for you, kiss my arse. Cause I’m telling you it’s a GOOD idea!

Call that friend when there is NOTHING wrong. When you DON’T need a favor or help. Let them know that you care also… unconditionally.

If you are reading this, and are a little mad, jealous or envious, saying to yourself… “I don’t have anyone in my life like that…” Then open your frickin eyes. Because somewhere out there is someone who digs you. Who probably actually has done kind things for YOU and wants to be your friend. Recognize them. Maybe they don’t have the same beliefs as you do, or political views, social status or wear the same clothes. It doesn’t matter.  Learn to see the good in folks. See them for who they really are. DO what I do NOW and CHOOSE the friends who CHOOSE YOU! There may be someone just around the corner who could be straight out of YOUR “Raspberry Beret Video”

A BIG juicy BOOTY!

Aint nothing wrong with 
baby havin some “Back!” 

Personally I prefer to have my own be FREE of cellulite and more on the “rock hard” side of things rather that a Jell-O peep show. ;-)

You can want a great butt all you want, but unless you were born with perfect genetics, it’s going to involve a pretty clean diet, lots of squats and LOT’S of lunges. It’s all-good. You get what you put into something. And it’s worth the extra work to me!

The gym is an important outlet for me. When I’m fed up with life’s BS, I know I can go there and let off some steam. There are wonderful people there who understand my drive and encourage me to dig deeper.

I also listen to so many different self-encouragement, financial and over all life-improving books on audio when I’m at the gym. It helps pass the time on cardio machines and fills my brain up with a different kind of “food” we all need to feed our intellect. Just TRY and be in a bad mood leaving the gym from exercise and positive affirmations going into and through the mind. It’s impossible!

So many of these “success” books I’m listening to talk about surrounding yourself with positive and encouraging people. Much like putting effort into having a great rear end, Lol, so does having GREAT friends in your life.

We hear it time and time again as children, “Choose your friends wisely” and “birds of a feather flock together…” but when we get older, we forget. So this is a friendly reminder that if your life needs to improve, which I think all of ours can always stand to, take a look at not only yourself but also the friends you keep.

Today I dedicate this blog to my friend and agent Hannah Garber. Not because we are talkin bout awesome derrieres, but because she is solid. She always has something motivating and positive to say. She listens. She encourages and she makes me smile.

If you have a bunch of “a holes” at your work place and can’t get away from them… start ignoring. Befriend someone that may not seem your “type” but who has the right heart. Choose people who are “good” for you. And choose the people who “choose” you. :-)

Hannah not only is beautiful on the outside, but on the inside. She is a busy mother, professional in the entertainment industry and independent Rodan & Fields skin care consultant. She always finds the time to talk via phone, Facetime or have our bi monthly “girl” dates.

We dress up. Plan our outfits, take pictures and talk about how we are going to advance our careers. Dates don’t always have to be someone you want to “hook up with” you know. ;-) It’s a wonderful idea to make sure EVERY month you plan several get-togethers with friends. Put it on the calendar and use that time to talk about ideas and self-improvements. It’s amazing what it will do for your life!

So the next time you’re complaining about your body image, a specific target area or your life, do something to change it. Better yourself. Take the first step to DECIDE to make time to change. And make sure that you’re hanging out with the right people. And if you’re not? It’s as easy as a snap of the finger to find great and new people. So do it!

Blog Recap. 
I like my friends like I’s likes my booty! Tight & solid! Ha ha









I am a proud supporter of Hannah’s Skin Care. It’s worked miracles on my own face!

Hot guys & motivation!

I just love it when there are some hot dudes at the gym! I actually stay and do something! Lol. What ever may motivate you, think on it, concentrate and just look forward to it. Program yourself to WANT to do that little "extra". Sometimes the only person there to give us a push is ourselves. Learn to lean on you!

Joining a gym, sometimes as inexpensive as $10 a month, and just forces you to go get out of your comfort zone. The other people there, we become friends with, hold you accountable for your actions. I can think of numerous times someone yelled as I was leaving... "you done already?!" I always come back in and pound out a few more sets of something or do an exercise with the accuser! It's win win. :-)

Do something for your health today. Get on it! One body, one life. Make the best of it. And FIND your motivation! Whether it's that hot muscle head at the gym or that cute girl in accounting... find it. :-)

Colt Ford My Country Star With Swagga!

I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud or excited for a record coming out. I’ve had the privilege now several times of shooting Country/Rap Star Colt Ford. It seems as though each time the shoot gets better and better. Like really good sex when you have LEARNED your partner and what he likes! We work pretty damn great together! Ha ha

Well, while I’ve personally not been too busy in that area I guess I will live vicariously through my photography! Lol. No rest for the wicked and when you see Colt’s new album artwork, cover and layout, you will see where my time has been going! Shooting the stars!



This guy is a DREAM to work with. He’s comfortable in his skin, always has the best clothes, (some he even makes himself) amazing stylists, staff, team and people at his label supporting him. It’s such an honor. Colt is a pro with his body angles, facial expressions and we know each other’s work styles so well… the shoots always flow like 
"Chicken and Biscuits."


I was just talking to my dad today, having him say how lucky I am to have my photography and studio to keep my mind creative and bills paid when not on TV or the road. What a blessing. And I’m so grateful to all my teachers along the way for helping me constantly improve. Even my high school teacher who gave me suspension for starting a fire in the darkroom. I get it bro… I was a hot mess back then! Still am! Makes for a fun life!


Thanks to all who support not only my music and shows, but my other forms of art as well. It truly is an honor to shoot artists like Colt Ford. Damn that dude makes lookin great… easy.
