Did you choose print or did print choose you?

Both! My father worked as a pressman. I never thought I’d do anything related to what he did when I was young. I got a job at an ad agency and found print production. I’ve been in love with production ever since.

How do you establish credibility with colleagues, clients and bosses? 

I believe you need to actively listen to all team members, ask lots of questions, be thoughtful with your approach, remember ideas can come from anywhere and anyone. Being firm but kind and remaining calm is also important. Always looking for what’s next and constantly learning.

In 50 words or less tell us your mission for elevating Print this year.

Show and tell! I will try to consistently show and tell about print. I’m not a big poster but will make it my goal to post at least once a month about print in 2021.
