Now 20 years into my print industry career, I marvel at how it
continues to change. New technology and processes
have played their role, but the changes in how we deliver products to our
customers has been the space I have focused on since earning degrees in
International Business and Economics. My career has been one of integrating companies and people in both large
corporations like Taylor Corporation to smaller individually owned companies...from business cards to sophisticated corporate identity programs. And now, in today’s connected business
world, I am able to enjoy all of this from my home in Colorado. My favorite diversions are participation in
community outreach projects, and enjoying the beauty of my adopted state.
