People who have challenged me to create, stretch my imagination, and reach an objective have been some of my greatest influences. Of course, family and friends who believe in my creativity have been sources of stalwart support.

Flight related: I have had the fortune of meeting some very good flight instructors and friends who taught me how to continuously improve my flying and always respect the following:
"Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect." (Origin unknown, quoted from the book "Learning to fly Helicopters" by Randall R. Padfield.

Horse related: I could name as many, but as on www.feel-timing-balance.com everything goes back to Tom Dorrance who was one of the first horsemen to say: "It's all about feel, timing, and balance." Thank you, Tom, Bill, and Ray for passing on the gift. Thank you, Steve Halfpenny, Philip Nye, Mark Rashid, and Buck Brannanam for keeping it alive until today - here and now.

To be perfectly honest, the most influential people in my career would be my parents. They originally taught me how to paint, how to work with customers, and gave me guidance when I needed it. They started out with teaching my brother and I how to properly clean brushes and rollers so we would learn the importance of organization and cleanliness. Not too long after, we started painting with brushes, then rollers and finally a sprayer once we had enough experience.
