I am an Evangelist for pouches.

I am a cheerleader, referee and coach for our company and our employees. I am a genuine believer that flexible packaging is the superior solution in nearly every application that comes along. Purity protection, package functionality, graphic impact; pouches offer it all.

I have had both the pleasure and privilege to be part of some of the most innovative and significant food and beverage products launched in pouches in the last 20 years. I’ve had 24+ years of experience in building from the ground up and helping lead when pouch packaging was just making its entrance to the North American Market. Now it’s become the fastest-growing package modality available.
