Week 3: Casually Cool
What do you like to do for fun?
My number one passion and purpose in life is my family. I grew up in a large, musical family (13 siblings). We had two bands: one for 15 years and the other for 52! Currently, there are approximately 250 in my immediate family. (Yes – weddings and holidays are a blast!)
I’ve been married to an amazing human being, Angie, for 33 years. We have four children and two grandchildren with one on the way. My children are also very musically gifted. They share those talents by playing piano and singing at weekly Mass, as a high school music educator and members of a cover band. We, as a family, enjoy performing in the theater. Throughout the years, we have all been in musical theater either as actors, music directors, choreographers, stage management and/or overall directing. My family is everything to me. God has truly blessed me!
When performing in a musical or on-stage in a band…image and brand are important, and can be represented by the appropriate apparel.
Week 2: Workplace Image
What do you find most rewarding about your job?
My daily passion is to assist in growing others and help them achieve their personal goals. I believe there is great reward when a person on your team feels that he/she is making a difference in this world. Because I have the pleasure and honor of working in a creative environment with extremely creative people, it’s amazing to hear ideas and allow each one to express themselves. Their expression is not only communicated through words, but also by apparel. Whether they wear a fun outfit at a creative session or a professional look during a meeting with executives…their desired image is immediately portrayed through clothing selections.
Week 1: First Impressions
What made you decide to pursue your current career or vocation?
I have been very blessed by having the privilege of being a teammate at Midmark Corporation for 34 years. Throughout my career there, I’ve held various leadership roles. Along with hard work and dedication, I tribute part of my success to creating a brand that represents me and whom I want to become. I support the statement, “Dress for the next role you want.” I believe clothing and appearance portrays a lasting impression when first meeting someone. Along with clothing and proper communication skills, that impression may be the first step in enhancing your career path.
