**Update: 2019 Graduated cum laude, VCU- Mechanical Engineering, left the print industry to work as an engineer. Bye bye print, a new chapter begins....

My past Print BIO:

I started working in press rooms at 15 years old, eventually working up to management and compliance; currently 25+ years in the print industry as of 2017. Past press experience includes, Heidelberg, KBA, Man Roland and Mitsubishi, specializing in perfecting/long perfectors. Today I work full time managing operations, facilities and compliance while attending college taking 9-12 credits per semester.

After years of enjoying my trade, in 2012 I began working on my exit strategy to leave the print industry due to poor work life balance, lack of industry benefits, lack of compensation, poor technology advances, and a basic disregard for employee personal growth within the industry as a whole. I enrolled into my local community college , completed my Engineering AS Magna Cum Laude in 2016, now finishing up a BS in Mechanical Engineering with Nuclear Concentration at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating 2019.

Hobbies: Motorcycles- road racing and off road racing, Scuba Diving, Letterpress
