"I LOVED the challenge of going through the steps of hiring a team, establishing procedures and guidelines for editorial, creative and production oriented workflows was a great learning experience. I also enjoy the sense of accomplishment after so many painstaking hours spent on producing elements of a book, then finally seeing the printed piece is enriching. The managerial duties is what I sometimes hated as it sometimes interfered with what I was trying to accomplish at any given moment."
