What do you do at BIG? A Team Leader for the Architectural Sign Department (ASD), my responsibilities include set-up and preparation of art files used to produce dimensional, architectural, and ADA-compliant signage, as well as assisting in fabrication of such products. Responsible for ensuring quality of finished products while motivating co-workers to deliver their best possible work.

How long have you worked at BIG? Four years

What is the coolest project you’ve worked on at BIG? We recently completed a large dimensional project depicting the history of Wild Turkey Bourbon that was installed at their new distillery in central Kentucky. The project included many layers of painted acrylic panels with direct-printed artwork mounted various depths off the wall and incorporated some one-of-a-kind artifacts provided by Wild Turkey Bourbon. The final result looked spectacular and the client was extremely pleased.
