Sheila Reed

Director of Trade shows & Events

Sheila_Web_Pic

Bio
For some writers it began with poems, song lyrics or nursery rhymes. With Sheila, her passion for writing started when she received a diary as a gift. Even at the age of 8, she knew there was something special and lasting about inking her thoughts onto paper. In 2011, it was an internship with Branding Iron where she found her career path­. One that allowed her to use the journalistic writing style that she developed under the tutelage of Scott Emerine. Her degree in communications and her background in event planning are now paying off. She’s quickly winning over Branding Iron clients due to her marketing, public relations and trade event planning capabilities. When she’s not in the office, she can be seen jogging around town with her dog, Bella. Always keeping projects in motion, Sheila now uses her endurance to make sure things run smoothly for clients at major events and shows throughout North America.

Studio Artist

Bio

Tim tunneled out of East Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and has been applying his skills since Twin Peaks was still on the air. Notorious for his patience and attention to detail, Tim is known to perform graphic design under a microscope, thus causing many a multi-page layout to tap-out in submission. When he’s not out on a ledge, you can find Tim under the hood of any nearby Mac, meditating to chanting monks or fine tuning the effectiveness of the Spock nerve pinch.
