First and foremost, thank you Mom and Dad for your support, pragmatism, and fostering my creativity from a young age. Thank you to Ted and Susan for making sense of my verbosity and dealing with a need for validation through an overuse of commas. Justin, Connelly, Rick, and Navid, your input and contributions were invaluable and I’m grateful. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this book in some way, either as subjects or an ear when I needed it. Last but not least, thank you Lindsay for being the engine behind this book; it would not exist without you. You continually impress me, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner, cheerleader, and confidant. Thank you for being on this journey with me.
