Did you choose print or did print choose you?
We found each other on a dark and stormy night when the Junior High School newspaper needed layout and paste-up work. We courted and found each other to our liking and have been flirting ever since. 50 years on we are still holding hands.
How do you establish credibility with customers, colleagues and bosses?
By knowing more than most of the people in the room. I do my homework and I study constantly.
What advice can you offer regarding negotiating salary raises/addressing fair pay issues?
Ask. Make your case. No one is going to make an offer.
What advice did you receive early in your career that you wished you had followed?
I followed most of the good advice. It’s how I got here.
