Thank You

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. —Sir Isaac Newton, 1676

I have been fortunate to have a long list of supportive family members, wonderful friends, helpful educators, and inspiring mentors in my life. Many of them I have known personally, others only through their work.

These people have influenced my thoughts and actions. My ideas and work have built upon the lessons I have learned from them. In the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson, “I am a part of all that I have met.”

For those reasons, I would like to say “Thank You” to…

Thanks again to the many people who have influenced my thinking and taught me important lessons over the years. My apologies to anyone I left off. I typically update this list each year.
