Thanks to everyone online and offline who accompanied me in this adventure--I could not have done it without you.

Special thanks go to Jason Kiss, who made all this possible and worthwhile. I am also deeply grateful to Bob Krukowski, Nikki Guerrero, Craig Davey, John Stevenson, Daphne Guerrero, Jean Burgess, Matt Webb, Timo Arnall, Rod McLaren and Molly Steenson for their support when things got hard.

This dissertation is dedicated to my mum, Betty Jean Galloway, who taught me to never give up.
