A very special thank you…
As the old saying goes, you can tell a lot about someone by the company they keep. To that end it is important to say thank you to everyone that helped in this effort and everyone who supported its realization. A very special thank you to all of the Mouseketeers, the Orbers, the Peacock Crew, the JDaters, the Trojans, the team at St. Jude, the psychics and fortune tellers, the Vista gang at MRM, the Marketers at Kaiser, the pit crew at Edmunds.com, the Hulugans, Fox, Sony, Universal Pictures, Universal Studios, the Syndicate, the Corestaffers, the Circlers, the Vitamin-T gang (your swag bags rock!) and all of the designers, art directors and creative directors that put up with me and taught me along the way.
More importantly, a special thank you to a restaurant guy and two extraordinary women for taking a chance on an untested designer and not getting too angry when things went sideways. But most importantly, a huge thank you to the Kid and Loid for getting me back in the game, a very masculine thank you to War, and of course, a huge shout out to Reginald - those first steps would not have been possible without you.
And a very special thank you to my family for hanging in there and a remarkable woman that told me to get this sorted out. Oh and thanks Dream Killer, Raspberry Beret and Super Squirrel - 90% of the designer I now am is due, in large part, to you.
