I was born in Montana and lived in a beautiful place where so many things were lush and green, that they nicknamed it “the Emerald City.” The colors there were brighter, the people shorter, the snow on the poppies - whiter. But everything wasn’t easy growing up. You never knew when some evil witch would wiz by and try to steal the ruby slippers right off your feet. Flying monkeys could drop-in when you least expected them, barging in when you were showering or re-stuffing your scarecrow! My first job was singing with ‘Lollipop Guild.' I tired of lederhosen pretty quickly and moved on to theatre, which is where Ben found me working as one of the foul-mouthed talking puppets in “Avenue Q”. He promised me baked goods and my own Vespa scooter, if I’d come to work with him and that was almost 24 years ago…still no scooter.
