I have gathered a diversified bunch of print and print media enthusiasts who help me bring relevant and topical information and resources to the Print and Integrated Marketing Service community. Collectively, there is not much in Print and Integrated Marketing we haven’t done and are still doing. Being in the trenches with our audience enables us to provide a current perspective on the industry, engage from personal knowledge and experience, and keep our sense of humors in the mix!
If you would like to lend your voice and share your expertise with our community, I’d love to hear from you.
Please contact me to discuss!
Here is a little information about me and the PMC contributors…

In addition to my PMC responsibilities, I work as a contract Print Production and Integrated Project Manager providing 25 years of experience in print production and advertising agency management. I also work behind the scenes with events, printers, suppliers and industry organizations to help with their cross media marketing and social media endeavors. As a noted Print BuyerologistTM I speak and present topical sessions at industry events about connecting and engaging with print customers. I also make time to blog for Printing Impressions and guest blog for other industry resources when I can.
