Main Characters

Bios coming soon…

The semi-serious, speculative Q and A’s presented below, based on Proust’s questionnaire, were conducted to serve as insufficient bios for me, my family, and bestie – the main “characters” in my life adventures. As you probably can tell if you know my
family, lots of over talk had to be cut in the interview transcribing process (because
we are always talking or singing, well, maybe not ALWAYS, but definitely
about 98.9% of the time 😂 ). Have fun learning about us!
