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…
John Kester III
All of my Denison University Baseball Teammates
Rolf Bachmann and the St. Gallen Symposium
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.
