  1. When and why did you join the Kingston team?

I joined Kingston in November 2015. I was a recent college graduate from Pittsburg State University’s Graphic Communications program and was looking to join a company where I could kickstart my career in the direction I wanted to go. Kingston was the perfect opportunity for me to start that experience, and I’ve enjoyed growing here ever since.

  1. What is your favorite part about your job?

I love that I get to be a part of bringing our customer’s works to life and making them a reality – it’s rewarding for me to take part in the transformation of digital files into final, finished products.

  1. Coolest print project you ever worked on and why?

I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a lot of really cool projects during my time at Kingston – one of my favorites that we produced was a ‘Weight Gain Equivalency Wheel’ for Hills Pet Nutrition – it was a 3-piece spinning wheel that showed you the conversions of dog and cat weight gains into human pound equivalents. Fun fact – 4lbs of extra weight on a Siamese cat = 50lbs of weight gain on a human!

  1. Favorite machine and why?

I really like the Kongsberg cutting table in our Wide Format department. There’s so many cool possibilities that machine can produce – anything from custom-shape stickers to 3D puzzles.

  1. Any tidbits about yourself outside of work – kids? Hobbies? Fun facts?

I’m a Tulsa, Oklahoma native, and am the only person out of my immediate family that does not live in the Tulsa metro area. I make regular trips back to Oklahoma at least once a month to spend time with friends and family. My hobbies include any outdoor activities, video games, and hanging out with my friends. I also enjoy running, and ran track for 10 years of my life – starting in 7th grade and finally hanging my shoes in May 2015 after a successful collegiate track career at Pittsburg State.
