6 September 2011 | Getting Started on LinkedIn 5 More about you. “In 1985 I completed my MFA in Photography and was headed to fulfill my aspiration to teach college level art/photography (and a little bit of print making and art history)...only to find out that the few jobs available were going to people with years and years of teaching experience. So, I began a path in desktop publishing and photo finishing that led me to the paper industry and a long fulfilling career with a company that has allowed me to grow personally in an incredibly entreprenurial environment. Today we are recognized leaders in the digital printing segment, innovating and helping shape the changing photo and publishing segment and on the vanguard of environmental sustainability. All in all, a pretty great ride...so far...plenty of great things up ahead!”
