I am a book manufacturing sales professional with over 25 years of experience initiating, building and maintaining relationships in a variety of print platforms. I have enjoyed working with publishers from all parts of the country and have been living in North Carolina the last 20+ years while covering multiple territories. The markets I have served include University Presses, Religious Publishers, Trade Publishers, Educational Publishers and Professional Publishers.
I have spent the past 8 years officiating high school basketball and really enjoy it. It certainly helps my communication skills in tough situations. My son and daughter play sports in college and I have kept busy watching their games over the years.
850-212-7576 direct line My connection with books started when I was called upon to run the operations at a library bindery one year out of college. The satisfaction of seeing the final product come to fruition after detailed craftsmanship applied throughout the entire process, left an indelible impression on me. Aside from a stint in real estate, I've been in the book business ever since with 2008 being my first year with Thomson-Shore. As a representative of Thomson-Shore, I very much appreciate the quality and attention to detail upon which we've built our reputation. I strive to provide my customers prompt guidance in planning their projects and my background in books helps me to do so. Feel free to give me a ring (or an e-mail) so I can help you on your next title.

I have worked in many phases of book production throughout my career at Thomson-Shore. I started in prepress in 1972, then transitioned to press and bindery. Later, I worked in purchasing and scheduling then in the mid-1990's I became head of Customer Service for Thomson-Shore. In 2001 moved into the sales position I hold today. I have been a panelist on many AAUP Conference sessions and have served on the Board of Directors for the PubWest organization.
I live in Michigan with my wife and have three grown sons who have blessed us with nine grandchildren. I was president of our local Boys Baseball and Girls Softball organization for 10 years, and have coached our sons and grand kids in various sports. I truly enjoy helping our publishing partners bring their manuscripts to life.

A native New Yorker, I spent most of my career on the ‘other side of the desk,’ responsible for production and manufacturing departments at major publishing companies. With a deep understanding of day-to-day production challenges, and the need for quality products and services, my sales role at Thomson-Shore is a perfect fit for me. Among other professional activities, I have been a member of the AAP Paper Issues Working Group, the AAP Committee for Textbook Specifications, and current Vice President of the Book Industry Guild of NY. I was voted one of the ‘Top 50 Women in Publishing’ by Book Business Magazine. I am passionate about books and publishing, and love to work with customers to help them realize their vision.

I've been a fan and collector of print (books, comics, advertising) all my life. I've been fortunate to have a career in print that has lasted 20+ years. Because this business is both my profession and personal passion, I can offer a unique perspective to my customers while providing a satisfying experience all around. I've had the pleasure of living and traveling throughout the Midwest, with Chicago being my most recent and particular favorite residency, but returned to my Michigan roots a few years ago.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from Eastern Michigan University, with a minor in printing, which has served me well in my professional life. My wife and I have two children (one of each flavor, boy and girl). We enjoy traveling the US, visiting local culture events, wineries and breweries, and attending conventions/events related to print.
734-395-3361 direct line Prior to working for Thomson-Shore, I was actually a book publisher myself, so I understand the business of an academic publisher, a trade publisher, and religious presses. My sales management and relationships are in areas that include publishers located outside the United States who wish to print and distribute their titles in the USA. My International clients are from the UK, the EU, Israel, Canada and Australia. I have served on the executive board member of the New York Bookbinders' Guild. I'm also a member of the Academy of American Religion and an active member of the British-American Business Council.
734-426-6350 direct line I joined Thomson-Shore in 2018 to lead the company’s Sales vision and strategy. I graduated from Michigan State in 1988, and have enjoyed a 25+ year career in sales (after a brief period as a ski bum.) Since 2007, I’ve been a leader in developing strategies in the book publishing, manufacturing, and distribution businesses; I have also successfully managed sales teams to help authors and publishers navigate the publishing waters of today and tomorrow.
The book industry has experienced unimaginable change in the last decade, and Thomson-Shore is committed to remaining relevant and responsive to our new landscape. My central goal is to provide Thomson-Shore’s publishing clients with a world-class customer experience. Our strategy, simply stated, is to provide highly-valued and high-quality services to the book industry from manuscript to reader.
