I would like to take a moment to thank a few people that truly helped me complete this project. First, my wife, Olivia, for putting up with the late nights and frustrated moments. I could not have done this without you. My parents, Shelley and Rush, for all their support through the years. My professor and friend, Daniel Melzer, PhD., who helped me with this project long after I left the university. Amy Heckathorn, PhD. and David Toise, PhD., who helped me through the masters program and made me a more focused composer.
