What is your business?

Why did you go into business?

Ever since college, I was going to open a bridal boutique in Anchorage; after graduating however the business opportunity that Xerox and Herman Mimller gave to me could not be surpassed and I haven't regretted it for a moment. I went into a different direction with my original ream. Now I design attractive offices that are functional and ergonomic. I enjoy each day!
