Dave and I met when I did community theatre in high school and he ran a local production company called Wit's End Players. It was one of the more positive experiences of my adolescence. Also, Dave was my first entrepreneur friend and I was very impressed with the way he turned a passion for theatre into a career. Also, I was 17, so I was just generally impressed by anyone who got through a full day without getting yelled at by their parents.
It's been a fun/irritating challenge getting graphics ideas to work that don't involve any figures. If I could combine Illustrator, Photoshop, and Clip Studio Paint into one giant drawing app with intuitive keyboard shortcuts and like 4 different kinds of selection tools I would be living the dream. But alas.
