Personal Bio

I am an Electronics Engineer and 25 Year veteran of the sign industry.  I came into it from repairing large format printers and electronic devices.  I purchased my first vinyl sign shop in 1996 and by 1998 had done my first van wrap.  I have owned and managed several shops over the years and designed, engineered, fabricated, and installed hundreds of signs including Monument signs with EMCs, Channel Lettering, Wraps, Pylon and pretty much any other type of signage.

Since 2007 I have been doing support and repair in the industry for CNC & Large Format machinery and software support & Color Profiling for most software used in our daily workflows.  I have trained many in the use of Flexi, Enroute and Vehicle Wraps.  I am still daily doing installs of wraps, signs, and Anti-Graffiti film.  Adept at wrap design and install using multiple software programs. Currently run Xante’, Colex, Seiko/Oki, Epson, HP and Mimaki devices.

Chris was very patient and extremely helpful in explaining how our new-to-us Mimaki cutter works. He worked through a couple issues I was having with contour cutting and I’m well on my way to getting these dialed in.

Chris is a pro and really knows his stuff. And I’m sure this won’t be the last time Chris and I have a chat via Adendo!

I highly recommend Chris.  He got us a good ways down the road to fixing a major color issue on the flexi interface with our HP Z5200. He is filled to the brim with valuable color information! The solution to the puzzle we set up the session to solve is unfortunately still a mystery. If anyone has printed a sheet-fed job through flexi to a HP Z5200 I would love for you to contact Adendo.  This is our first experience with Adendo and I am thrilled that we have found this support resource.

I purchased a print and cut and didn’t have any idea on how to set it up. Chris was in town and came by to make sure the settings was correct on the print and cut.  Great support and training with Chris.  I will definitely use his service again. Great knowledge.  Thanks again Chris for the help.

We had people of all levels that uses Flexi. Chris came in to give some of us a refresher course and others a crash course. He worked half the day with the whole group and the other half with the individual. I would highly recommend Chris as an instructor he is very knowledgeable in Flexi training.

Chris worked with on both an HP Latex printer and a Mutoh traffic jet, changing from Flexi 3M addition to Avery Flexi addition and never missed a beat. He was able to show us multiple short cuts making our job easier.
