At our recent annual kick off event in Florida I started promoting Jay Lee 2.0, the kinder, gentler Jay Lee. This coincides with the recent update of my photo used at the Houston Chronicle.
Since I started writing for them nearly 7 years ago this has been the picture used in the paper and, more recently on the web site and blog.
Great picture, but not so accurate some seven years later.
Dwight started talking to me about going by The Chronicle building and getting a new head shot. I finally got down there a few weeks ago and Houston Chronicle staff photographer Smiley Pool did the honors.
Certainly not the most compelling photograph he’s ever taken in his journalistic career.
Here’s hoping it’ll last for another 7 years.
