And, on a personal note, I'd like to thank everyone at the MVPA and in the production community. I started in the music video business back in 1995, and it's a huge honor and surprise to be recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Thanks for letting me stick around and help shine a light on great videos and the creative people who make them. Just as humbling as this award was all the people who came up to thank me for helping them over the years. So, thank you. Without your great work, I wouldn't have much to write about. Also, I hope this doesn't mean I'm old.
