    First, a bit of background so you know where I'm coming from...

    I was born in Philadelphia where I held the city record for over 23 years as the heaviest non-csection (16 lbs. 4 oz).

    I moved to Nashville at age five when offered the opportunity to travel the southeast as "Kid Kannonball" for the Shine Circus. Soon after, I was discovered by a Hollywood talent scout and had a short stretch as a child actor.

    I did a few bit parts in early TV sitcoms but am probably remembered most as being the original "Addam's Family" character "Cousin It". I was the right height and made a voice the producers loved. But in a short time, they simply recorded my voice and then dubbed it in which allowed them to use non-union foreign labor which was much cheaper. I had a deal in the works with the original makers of the first handheld blow dryer in the early 70's to use the voice in a series of commercials but was sued by the network. Though I lost the lawsuit, I still receive $30 bucks per episode shown where my voice is used. Sweet! :)

    I then lived more of a "normal" childhood though joined the 18-and-under Nashville Ballet Company at age 12. That promising career quickly ended a few months after starting because I went through "the change" and the troupe got complaints from audience members.

    After high school graduation, I was recruited into the NASA program which is when my second growth spurt occurred and ruined my chances of a future there as they felt I would use up too much air in the shuttle.

    Despite full scholarships to Dartmouth and Cal Berkeley, I decided to stay close to home and attend Middle Tennessee State University and pursue my future desire to be the webmaster of goTitans.com.

    And, as they say, the rest is history.

    As for my fav NFL team before the Titans, it was the Cowboys back in the day of Bob Lilly and Roger the Dodger. I was a fan without a team for a long stretch before the Oilers came to Tennessee.

    What has been your proudest professional accomplishment so far? Other than the Cousin It stint of course.

    I've done some fun stuff but the Titans plate design is something I still take a lot of pride in because of all the work of so many fans who made it happen and how much impact it's had (and is still having) in generating money for charities.
