To my wife, Laura, thank you for supporting me every step of this journey. You gave me strength to work on this project, and your love and support fueled me all those late nights. To my daughter, Kenzie, I hope you see this some day and realize that no goal is too big to accomplish.
To my parents, thank you for teaching me to work for things I want and to never give up.
Thanks to Brian, Chris, and Mike for collaborating on this; you have made me a better writer with your constant feedback and support. You guys kept me going when sections got tough, and I really appreciated that.
To my colleagues at both Getty and Madison College, thank you for your support and feedback.
