Dear Michael and gang,

Wow. I'm still walking on a cloud from the Road Rally last week. I only joined Taxi about 6 weeks ago and flew out to the Rally from Florida. And I can say, without a doubt, that this Rally just took me to another level in my career. I had to give honor where honor is due and thank you for providing the venue and the tremendous talent who invested themselves into our lives to help us realize our dreams. I can hardly wait to see what the upcoming months hold. Again, I thank you all, with all of my heart,
