I’m very happy to be included in this year’s Top 40 Under 40 by Gambit Weekly. The reception was great and it was nice to network with so many people who are making contributions to our world. It’s funny because I actually nominated someone else this year and as I wrote the nomination all I could think about was what I’d accomplish next year so that someone would nominate me. Funny how things work! I’d like to congratulate all of this year’s winners and send a shout out to Gambit for creating this honor. Between the LA Book Fest and the 40 Under 40 Awards Reception, I’ve definitely been re-inspired…. I even got to meet the person who contributed the largest amount of money to my online fundraising campaign for W.R.I.T.E. Her name is Iam Tucker and she was also one of last night’s winner. Thank you again Iam, keep up the good work and get started on that book!
I couldn’t do anything I’ve done without the support and love of my family, friends and other kind souls I’ve met along the way. Thank you and I hope I continue to make you proud!
