I have worked in most sectors of the printing industry as pressman, cameraman, film assembler, trapper, CSR, production manager, artist, quality control, production facilitator, and technical liaison for customers and vendors.
My education was engineering and architecture. I've used that education in nearly all my jobs in the printing industry. How things and processes work and how to make them better, more exact and automated have been my passions at my jobs. My aptitudes for mechanical design, planning, research, testing, computer code, simplified explanation, and extreme attention to detail are my core strengths.
I thrive in an environment where skill, ingenuity, and problem-solving skills are appreciated. The programs and systems I have developed have been enthusiastically received and implemented. I enjoy the challenges of devising better ways of doing things and training others.
