Tell us a piece of good news that happened this past year in your life.  
I’ve had the opportunity to really define the marketing department and its vision. I’ve added headcount, budget and the team is producing killer results.

The USPS postal tote. MDI (the company I work for) is the main provider of these essential containers, with over 100 million postal totes made in Minnesota.    

Where did you grow up and why was it a great place?  
Baltic, South Dakota. I was close to my grandma and grandpa, who were influential in my upbringing. My grandma drove the school bus for 40 years and grandpa worked in the meat plant.
