Meet Don, Your Partner in Print


Professional Background

As a printing consultant, I have proudly served businesses of every size, from tiny startups to Fortune 500 companies. I enjoy building genuine connections with people at all levels, meeting and exceeding their expectations, and helping them effectively transform their brands into reality.

I began my career in sales at a small advertising agency. Because of the agency’s size, I was involved in most projects and got to know our suppliers. One was a company that did color separations for all of the agency’s print campaigns. I was fascinated working with them and jumped at the chance when they invited me to join their team. I learned the intricate details of a printing dot, what line screen was, how proofing systems worked - or didn’t - and how ink reacts on different materials.

From there, I went to Adams Lithographing, which was - and is - objectively one of the best printers in the country. Adams had a great reputation for quality work, and every sales person wants to represent the best. While at Adams, I helped put together a design team that would enable us to do more than just fulfil printing orders. In no time, my colleagues and I were providing advisory services for material, layout, color, and all other aspects of print production. I loved saying “Yes, we can do that!”

Since then, Adams and I have worked together on print campaigns for Volkswagen Group of America, Porsche Cars North America, leading advertising agencies, and brands both in the United States and internationally. We strive to produce the best printing possible. We take pride in our award-winning work. Let us know how we can help you.

Personal Background

As a young boy being raised in Southern California I developed a love of the outdoors and being in or on the water somewhere, pool, ocean or lake they are all good! I think saltwater fishing is about as much fun as you can have.

It’s been almost 10 years now since I went to my first yoga class and why it took me so long to discover this practice I’ll never know given how special and important it is to me now.

As a Father of two almost grown children I know how fast time flies and therefore try to enjoy each and everyday to its fullest.

Outside of the office, I have a variety of interests. Growing up in Southern California, I developed a lifelong passion for the outdoors. I love being on or in the water and think saltwater fishing is about as much fun as you can legally have.

I’m an avid yogi. Despite growing up in SoCal, I attended my first class in Tennessee! It’s been almost a decade since I went to my first yoga class, and I’ll never know why it took me so long to discover my practice, given how important it has become to me.

Finally, and most importantly, I’m the father of two nearly grown children. I know how fast time flies, and I consciously try to enjoy each and every day to the fullest.
