A Lil Head

Before we go any further, I guess I should give some back story on Brother Head.

1) Origin of the name Head:
Even though it sounds dirty, my nickname Head came about rather innocently.

Growing up, I've always been a bit forgetful (and yes, nothing has changed all these many years later).  My friends (probably either Dee (Dean Cole) or Bop (Billy Tevnan) starting calling me Airhead (you know, like: Way to go Airhead).  So for awhile, I went be Airhead.  Eventually, being lazy bastichs, my friends shortened it down to Head.  So was born 'Head'.

Sometime later, they would start adding Brother on to the front of it (as we were like brothers growing up).  So for many, many years, I went by either Head or Brother Head.

2) My Family:
My immediate family consists of my beautiful wife Michelle Moss, daughter Alexis Moss and two sons, Timothy Moss (currently living in Chowchilla) and my baby boy, Steven Moss (yes, at 19, he's still my baby boy).  We live in Sanger, CA (except for Tim as I noted earlier) where we're buying a home (yeah for home ownership).  Also in Sanger are my in-laws, Robert and Jennifer Hudson (the best in-laws a guy could have).  On my mother's side of the family, I have uncles in Chowchilla, Fresno, Merced/Atwater, and Colorado.  On my step-father's side... eh, who gives a damn.  That side of the family is pretty damn worthless.

My brother (Jerry Lee Todd II), mother (Sherry Darlene Todd), and both grandparents (on my mom's side - Oscar and Betty Gipe) are deceased.  My step-father and his parents are also dead, but the less said about them the better.  For more on the death of my brother and mother, check out my actual website ( under Head's Secret Origin).

Then you have my friends, who are like family.  First and foremost is my best friend in the whole world and has been for over 35 years, is Dean Ray Cole (of Chowchilla).  He was there when my brother and then mother died.  He was there when I got divorced.  He's been there when ever I need him.  And that's what family is.
My other close friends are Jason Spense (my brother from another mother and fellow Bear fan), Scott Kessler (even though he's out in Missouri now), Dean Kasparian, the Little's (no, not the people that live in walls from the 80's tv show, but John and Chanel), and last but not least Tony Ralls.
If I've forgotten anyone, oops.  Sorry.

3) Job:
Currently I'm working seasonally at the IRS as a Tax Examiner.  I work in the 1040X department handling amended tax returns (1040Xs).  I'm trying to get on permanent instead of just seasonal.  I'm nearing the end of my fourth season at the IRS.
When I'm not at the IRS, I find myself over at POM Wonderful in Del Ray, CA running the scale house.  I've been there for the past 3 seasons.

Going back to my first season at the IRS, it also marked my final year at Brand X Networks.  Brand X Networks was an internet company, doing technical support for other companies.  Brand X went by several names over the years: Protosource Networks (aka PSNW), Brand X Networks, Fused BX and finally back to Brand X Networks.  Due to mismanagement, Brand X finally closed it's doors (at least in Fresno) in 2010.

Besides these jobs, I've also tried to several jobs that have failed.  I tried to start an online comic with some guys, was brought on for a comic related fanzine that fell through, and finally with my best friend Dean, tried to write and direct movies.  Due to my procrastinating and also getting married, the filming and directing movies fell by the wayside (unfortunately).
Also, me and my buddy Scott Kessler (with our friends Terry and Josh) tried doing a comic book (called Crisis Control).  CC was Scott and Terry's idea that I assisted them with.  Josh was brought in as artist.  Unfortunately, again, things fell through.

Which brings us current.
