Thanks and Credits:
Many thanks to Deppography
alums Cassady, John and Bonnie, who gave me some great
advice, hints and assistance about web-related stuff when I was first
starting this site. Thanks also to the original
Goddesses- MQ, Mutley, Pattie, Peri, Jaq and
Del for their support and assistance. I also
appreciate all the outstanding contributions that have been posted
there by all of the Deppography
gang, past and present. I can't say enough about the
wonderful comraderie and
enthusiasm I've had the pleasure of sharing with all the good folks
to Flynn and Dan for the early look and for subsequent help above and
beyond. John Leach and his wonderful original Springsteen
Brucebase served as an
inspiration for the structure of my much smaller and humbler site.
While I've made an effort to pull my own weight by doing my own scans
and screen captures when possible, I owe much to so many generous
members of the Johnny Depp fan community who have shared their
contributions. Same goes for digging up whatever
information may be out there. Thanks and all best wishes to
members of the Johnny Depp Zone, Depp
Fans of Depp,
JD-Org, Johnny Depp Network, Oh Johnny, JDFan, JDWeb,Inspired By
Depp, InADeppTrance, Russian Fans of Johnny Depp, Tim Burton & Johnny Depp Daily
(Russian), johnnydeppforever.com, and many other fan sites too
numerous to mention. Much
of the initial information I had that got this site started was first
posted to and hosted on the Johnny Depp
Reports and Johnny Depp Reads message board. Many
thanks to Karen and the members of JDR for their support and

My real life profession is about as far as it gets from
Hollywood or a concert stage! I am a molecular biologist,
studying the genetics of kidney cancer at a prominent research
institute outside of Washington, DC. I never really liked the
science was taught to me as a kid- I remember copying notes that the
teacher wrote on a chalkboard, and having to memorize the different
types of clouds or the different types of rocks.
remember telling people that I wanted to be a "lady astronomer" when I
grew up. That was probably either due to the space program,
love of cheesy sci-fi movies, or both! By high school, I
that science was much more fun when you got to do actual lab
experiments, so I went to college as a biology major and it all went
from there. Over the years, my career has taken me up and
the East Coast, from New York (my birthplace; college) to North
Carolina (graduate school) to New
Jersey (post-doctoral research), and finally now here to Maryland (real
job). While the day to day
routines and pressures sometimes make it seem like I have an ordinary
job, it occasionally dawns on me how amazing it is to make new
discoveries that have never before been known, with the hope that the
knowledge may someday benefit cancer patients.
My professional skills in collecting and organizing data have no doubt
helped me in
building this site, but over and above that, I've always had a love of
music. I play piano and acoustic guitar, and I once played
concert bells and percussion in a community band for four years.
I am also a member of the American Recorder
Society. I love everything from
Classical to show tunes to Sousa marches, and almost everything in
between. But of course, I love rock and roll the most!
Even as a
preteen, I was already buying a lot of albums with my allowance.
remember my mom being worried at first because she thought it was just
a phase I was going through and that the money would be wasted if I
tired of the records I bought. But she understood once she
realized how much I
treasured my record collection and that it would become one of my
lifelong passions. I still have a decent sized collection,
including a number of vinyl LPs and 7" singles on top of lots of CDs.
I'm a longtime fan of Bruce Springsteen and have seen him in
concert exactly 100 times (and counting!) since 1978.
I have also collected
many live recordings and am an active participant on several
Springsteen message boards. I have many other favorite rock
and musical artists as well, but none to quite the same degree!
Besides music, I am also a huge fan of horror and sci-fi novels, films
and TV shows. (As an avid Dark Shadows
fan who has every one of the 1,225 episodes on VHS, I was thrilled when
I heard of Johnny's plans to produce and star in the film version!)
I enjoy arts and crafts and wish I had more
to pursue them. I've always loved the ocean and get there
can, which, sadly, is never often enough. I enjoy spending
with family, friends, and my cat Angelina. And I love to
Johnny Depp's movies!
