Financial advisors, please visit

The following individuals and organizations have served as sources of inspiration, funding, or other forms of support for my work. For brevity, I have listed individuals only if they offered support independent of any organization. Otherwise I have listed organizations, most of which host many individuals to whom I am very grateful. Please contact me if you see an omission. I try hard to be mindful of all the support I have received and cultivate an attitude of gratitude.
