My friends call me Matt. I have worked at Ferris Print Services for a year and a half and initially chose this career path because it allowed me to spend more time with my family and continue my education. The more time I spend here, the more I develop an interest in design work. However, my favorite part of my job is getting to know all our customers whether they’re a part of the Ferris family or the Big Rapids community. I am a jack of all trades. Throughout the day, you can find me helping customers, doing file set-up/design, and printing. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, 19-month-old daughter, hunting, reading, exercising and falling into the occasional DIY YouTube hole.
