Work is always better when you love what you do, and you enjoy the people you do it with. I am grateful that I enjoy both. IMS 2011 was a full and exhausting week…yet so much fun! I congratulate and acknowledge the small army of collaborators who made the MTTS IMS 2011 such a success. It was, indeed, a show to be remembered. I feel fortunate to have been a small part of such a grand event!
Looking forward to doing it again in Montreal in 2012!
