When not at work I enjoy spending time with my amazing family & friends.

University- Ann Arbor for Family Life Major/Youth Ministry Emphasis to becoming the Production Facilitator here in 2011. I'm jokingly called the "Sign Fairy" because while running the CNC Router, doing fabricating, assembling, and coordinating the workflow you will find signs/projects are completed "magically" by the next day unrelated to what I had been working on the day before. When I'm not at work I'm tinkering with my trucks (a 1966 Ford F-100,and a 2014 Silverado), or riding/working with my 1952 John Deere B in parades, and steam and gas shows. While living in the country is an adventure and challenging at times; it keeps me occupied with shooting my bow, fishing, and farming, but mostly fabricating and building things that my friends and family find on Pinterest."

Developing solutions for our customer’s wayfinding and signage needs can be very challenging. By applying my past experience, I work diligently to clearly communicate and simplify the tasks at hand. Through understanding current customer needs I work to lead our staff to creative and effective results.

many business segments through our signage and graphic creations. I am very pleased with what Visual Entities has accomplished since our beginning in 1989. Seeing how the company continues on a path of prosperity without my direct involvement also gives me satisfaction.
It always has been about a team effort at Visual Entities, and the successful transition we’ve experienced proves that out. Trusting with faith, at times, what has been unseen, and in the efforts of dedicated employees and partners frames where we are today."
