Why I Am Super Excited About GRAPH EXPO 15 This Weekend?
Here are five reasons why I am super excited about GRAPH EXPO 15 this weekend:
- I get to see your face. And yours. And that one. Well, not you. But definitely YOU!
- I get to see my industry bestie and everyone’s favorite stilt walker, Bill Farquharson, and get to meet his beautiful middle daughter Emma, the motorcycle riding wonder.
- I get to see all my tribe—people like Joe Kern, Deb Corn, MaryBeth Smith and all my brothers and sisters under the CMYK skin.
- I get to be around printers, graphic artists, equipment manufacturers, software developers, and folks who make consumables—these people are attending GRAPH EXPO 15 because they are committed and invested in print, the graphic arts and making sure we all succeed. O.M.G!!!! Excitement!
- For the first time in 20 years, I will be seeing Chicago as a visitor and not as a resident. I will be seeing some friends and getting to hit the city solo and have some much needed alone and friend time.
So if you see me at GRAPH EXPO 15, and you want to chat, please stop me and say hi! PLEASE? It makes me feel like the famous person I know I have trapped inside of me!

See you in Chicago!
