  • Of all the people in my life there's one person that I believe has shaped my life in the biggest way.

    Whether it was when I was a kid and put him high, so high, on a pedestal, or a teenager, realizing no pedestal should ever be built that high.

    He's the person I've had the most conversations with, traveled the most kilometers with, spent the most hours with and written the most emails to.

    You haven't spent time with me if you haven't heard me mention him. I do it so often that sometimes I'll lie and quote someone else to not sound obsessed.

    He's how I found my passion, the reason I can pursue it and why I can make it into a career.

    He flew out to see me on a moments notice on what I recall the worst day of my life.

    He's been equally there for me on the best days.

    He's tomorrow's biggest advocate. Never doubting it'll bring something better.

    He's my best friend and motivator, my training partner and my confidant.

    He constantly challenges me to get the most out of life.

    He's the reason I exist.

    He's the person I know the most about, good and bad.

    He's my dad, and I love him more than anything.

    Happy 50th!
