After over thirty years in the printing industry, it felt like time to retire. My idea of retiring was to bring to a close that which I had been doing for so many years and turn my sights toward something that would have a benefit to society. I turned my printing business over to my son and began looking for a new direction.
My wife Susan is the owner of Mad Science of the Bay Area. While looking for an opportunity to share my business experience in a beneficial way, I decided to give a bit of my time to my wife’s business. After seeing her company from this new perspective, I noticed there were a number of schools that her business was not impacting. I asked her why and was surprised at the simplicity of her answer, “It’s the demographics. The families whose children attend those schools and the schools themselves are not able to afford our program.”
