. Resume . Acknowledgements . . Words of Appreciation .
I feel I am where I am today in my creative life and career with the help of so many wonderful individuals, organizations and businesses that saw the value in what I had created in the past and saw my abilities to create in the future. I appreciate your trust and confidence in knowing that I am capable of bringing a project through to fruition.
For me the listing of my Resume and Biography is a reminder to myself that nothing happens without the partnership, cooperation, and support of others. Thank you one and all for your help and encouragement of the many projects we have worked on, believed in, and made happen... together!
