Folks who pitched in on this site (alphabetically)
Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) - Many many thanks to Cristina and the rest of the gang at RISCA. They are an integral part of the arts scene in Rhode Island, an agency that makes things happen for individual artists. Reach them at (401) 222-3880, or visit their website www.arts.ri.gov/ to learn more. Cristina, you are super.
RISD Office for Student Life - They help students. A lot. And they want to do even more! Call them! 401-454-6607 (for Don) or -6603 (for Bonnie) or -6604 (for Rachel) or -6610 (for Natalie). They Rock! And Don, couldn't have done it without you, many thanks.
Allison Boesch - Allison is a junior at the Rhode Island School of Design. At RISD she is studying illustration. She was the illustrator of this site. She illustrated the co-op case ("The Artist Co-op, a Good Idea?").
Jim Bush - Jim Bush is an artist and political cartoonist for the Providence Journal in Providence, RI. His studio is located in Warren, RI and is open by appointment. He lives in Providence, RI with his wife, three children, and dog Maggie. He has a piece up now at The Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, 98th Annual Exhibit. His most recent award is Honorable Mention in The Art League of Rhode Island's annual member's exhibition ongoing right now at Gallery 297 in Bristol, RI. (He illustrated the "Financial Planning is a Ritual, Not an Event" case, which is under construction... be patient!).
Giovanni Cicione Esq, - Gio is a lawyer who runs a private practice named (interestingly enough) Cicione & Associates. PC. In this practice, he represents entrepreneurs, growing companies, and their owners in business and personal matters (who would have thought he would ever have to bail a CEO out of jail?). He also used to work as a big shot lobbyist for Adler Pollock & Sheehan in Providence, RI (but we won't hold that against him... he can be like our guy on the inside...). He modestly told us about his various degrees and awards, said we could leave them out so he didn't have to toot his own horn. But he has one credential that we wouldn't let go unnoticed: he said he scored in the top percentile on his LSATs, GMATs and SATs. Now, that's really something. Means he's wicked smart! Finally, and of particular interest to artists, he spent 7 years (2000 - 2007) as a member of the RI Bar Association for Lawyers in the Arts... which means he knows how to get artists out of jail (just kidding!).
Michelle Forte - Michelle resides in Providence, RI and is currently a junior at the Rhode Island School of Design. She is studying for her bachelor's degree in textile design and is hoping to focus her career on apparel and related fabrics. On this project she worked on design, building, and editing of the site during its construction.
Larson Gunness - Larson holds an MBA in Accounting from MIT Sloan School of Management, an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College and a BA in Economics from Kenyon College. He was writer, editor, and subject matter expert (financial planning) for this site. He also drew the open hand and closed fist for the header on several pages.
Richard Streitfeld, CPA - Rich is a CPA (and, like in the case, isn't it kinda funny to have a an accountant named "Rich?"). He loves working with entrepreneurs and other creative types. Nicknamed “Buddhist mensch accountant”, he did seven years of hard labor directing an international Buddhist organization. Having achieved bliss, he then turned to accounting. He is a partner with Aaronson Lavoie Streitfeld Diaz and Co., P.C. in Rhode Island. They put up with his antics because he does good work and is a fine fellow.
