My background is software development. I spent 20 years writing code. Corporate life started to weigh on me and I wanted a way out. My wife and I both have art degrees, so I figured I would journey down that path.
I spent about a year trying to figure out which direction to go while still in my current profession. When I decided to look at screen printing it was more of a last resort, but I found that I enjoyed it. I immediately started to research how I could make money. With a family, that's the most important thing--making money.
