is focused on collective goals, and the company truly works as a team. All
hands on deck, and goals are achieved strategically and creatively using
modern, forward-thinking methodologies, as well as traditional ones. Simply

it's an incredible place to be. I want to thank Monte, Avery, Charlie, David,
Gary, Dennis and Toby for this opportunity as well as Brenda Romano and Chris
Lopes at Interscope for their amazing guidance and support over the years."
