"I am so honored to have received the Joseph P. Veasey Award, I am happy to share what it means to me. I remember hearing Joe's story my first year at Miami and thinking "I want to live like that." Life is so full of happiness and joy, and if we capitalize on that even half as much as Joe did the world will be a better place. I am honored to receive the Joseph P. Veasey Award, knowing I am doing my part to make the world better, starting with a single studio. Thank you so much for all your work and dedication to this Award, it means so much."
