To my mother, who has given me so muchespecially great food.
To my father, who encouraged me to follow my passion.
To my uncle Ralph, who gave me my first SLR camera.
To my two sons, Austin and Christian, who are my pride and joy. I'm sure that someday they'll go beyond macaroni and cheese.
To Joan, who is the voice of reason in my career.
And finally to my family, friends, associates, and clients who've helped me and encouraged me along the way.
