What is your favorite childhood memory?

It has to be an ice fishing trip with my dad and twin brother. My brother and I got home from school and found my dad waiting for us with sub sandwiches. We took them out to the lake and ate them as we were fishing. I can remember catching one fish right after the other. My hands got so cold from handling the fish that I could barely feel them. All in all it was one of the best days of fishing we have ever had.

What TV show did you enjoy as a kid? Why?

My brother and I really enjoyed watching X-Men and other superhero cartoons growing up. It was fun to have a fictional escape where the good guys won and evil was ousted.

What is the best thing you cook or bake?

My specialty is a creamy potato soup that I like to make during the cold winter months. The secret in my recipe is using local potatoes and veggies, along with whole milk from Wisconsin. I also add bacon bits from area meat markets.

What do you do “just for fun”?

I enjoy spending time outdoors pretty much all year round. After the snow flies, I like to cross country ski, snow shoe, and ice fish. I play fastpitch softball tournaments all over the Midwest in the spring and summertime to keep me busy. It's interesting to meet players from different parts of the state and abroad. I also enjoy boating on the Madison chain of lakes during the weekends.

What work would you do if you weren’t in printing?

If I weren't in the printing industry, I would want to work in sports or entertainment event planning. I completed an internship with the Milwaukee Brewers during my college years. It was exciting to help with the planning of game-day and sponsorship events. I enjoyed working with other employees, coaches, and players, all from different walks of life. I even had the opportunity to run in one of the famous sausage races and won on a photo finish.

What is the most satisfying part of your job?

I would have to say that learning about different kinds of printing methods is the best part of my job at Ad Press. I'm fascinated by all of the new and unique projects that our customers bring in. There are so many thought-provoking questions that come up when we are trying to find the most efficient production methods. Ad Press takes on a variety of these projects on a daily basis and they always seem to spur learning opportunities.

When a project comes together...it’s that feeling you get when after all the hard work and preparation is done, you sit down and take a deep breath and say, “We did It.”

What is your favorite childhood memory?

My favorite childhood memory is my family's winter vacation to Sam's condo in Grenelefe. Dad and I would play golf at Grenelefe, Oakwood or Sun-Air almost every day. Mom would ride along to referee the matches. The older I got, the more heated the matches became. One of the most memorable quotes from those matches is,"If they don't want us to hit their houses, they shouldn't build them on a golf course!"

What TV show did you enjoy as a kid? Why?

Scobby Doo. “Ri ron’t row, Raggy.”

What is the best thing you cook or bake?

I have been told that I make twice as big a mess in the kitchen as I should, so that being said, I take care of all grilling needs. On the baking side, I enjoy making apple crisp and breakfast casseroles (everyone says they are so good that my wife must be making it, really, it's so easy even I can make it!).

What do you do “just for fun”?

This is kind of a carryover from my childhood memories, but I have the most fun creating new memories with my family. There is nothing better than the laughter of your kids.

What work would you do if you weren’t in printing?

In my wildest dreams (no pun intended), I would be a professional golfer. After missing the cut at Q-school for the 20th straight year, caddying for Tiger would work. We have the same initials you know.

What is the most satisfying part of your job?

Knowing that everything I sell benefits everyone at Ad Press.

What is the most satisfying part of your job?

I love people and planning so Customer Service/Project Management is perfect for me. Meeting new clients and helping them with their projects from start to finish is very gratifying. I also have been allowed the opportunity to plan some fun activities within the Company which has been awesome. I have met so many great people during my 11 years at Adpress and plan to meet many more!
