TDC: Briefly tell us what led to the opening of Flood & Print. What were you doing prior to Flood & Print?
FAP: I was born an old soul, and an overly creative one. Sometimes I think, and anyone who knows me would agree, that maybe the extra creative juices took up the space in my brain for rational thought and fear and organizational skills. I wore a lot of different hats before Flood & Print in several different industries, and I have an educational background that began in biochemical engineering and culminated in interior design. I have always had this overwhelming urge to learn how to do as much with my own two hands as I possibly can. Throughout my work life I learned that what I am most passionate about is people. Take that and fast forward: I was about to sell my house and move to Atlanta to take on the big city when a nagging in my heart urged me to take the big leap and do something bigger. Luckily (remember the no fear thing) I'm not afraid of a challenge, so together with my best friends we embarked on this crazy adventure from literally the most humble of beginnings, and here we are less than a year later!
Flood & Print is the melting pot of all of those experiences and creativity. Here we get to be a part of so many businesses, and we get to help them tell their stories and express their creativity. Our clients are doing amazing things, and that is why we strive every day to continue building an environment of collaboration and creative education. There is nothing in the world that beats the look on a kids face when you teach them how to screen print--nothing. And one day, that little kid will have a dream and a business, and the tools to think creatively and a little more independently in this digital age. So that's the why.
