I began my professional career in the newspaper industry, where I honed my skills and became proficient in desktop publishing, scanning, and color separation/reproduction for cold-set web printing. I then went to work for a national graphic arts reseller, GE Richards Graphic Supplies (who I’d been purchasing hardware/software from), as an application specialist - training clients in graphics related software. I went on to become the only color specialist on staff, installing scanners and proofing systems and teaching people color management around the country. In 1999 I started my own business, ColorGeek Inc., solving client’s color workflow problems for photographers, printers, publishers, and converters. In 2010 I went to work for Color Management Distribution where I was the Director of Technical Services until November, 2018. In December of 2018 I became the Director of Technical Services for Alder Technology, where I'm responsible for professional color services, nationwide.
I'm also an avid professional photographer and enjoy expressing my creative side for a short list of choice clients and projects. My Goal is to make a great living doing what I love for and/or with good people, helping companies realize the benefits of digital imaging, color management, process control and workflow automation.
