He spent 20 years working for Meijer, Inc., first in the stores while attending Kendall and then in the corporate office in advertising, marketing, and package design. When he became the
victim beneficiary of corporate downsizing in 2001, his part-time side freelance business became his full-time dream a few years earlier than he had planned.

Caroline is in her tenth year of “employment” with us. She has definitely inherited her parents’ creativity, which includes their love of office supplies. Her current favorite activities are marker sketching and other multi-media crafts, creating elaborate imaginative stories about her stuffed animals with Daddy, eating as much ice cream as she is allowed, and playing Minecraft. Caroline lives by the motto “Why walk when you can skip through life?”
