I would like to think that I am the fuel pump that keeps every cylinder firing in this well-oiled machine. As owner and editor of two magazines, I spend a lot of time in my mobile office visiting with the pioneers and people involved in the farm equipment industry. If you had told me ten years ago that I would own a publishing company, two magazines, and have a staff, I would have laughed at you! But I have been blessed with them all and can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing… except flying!
I grew up in a small town in south central Illinois. While I don’t personally know a lot about tractors, I did grow up around farming and definitely have a great appreciation and respect for the industry. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Mass Communications from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and then married my husband, Lucas, on a Colorado mountaintop. We now have 2 beautiful little girls who keep us very busy. I work with Sherry in the Greenville office as the Office Manager. If you call the office, I will usually be the one you’ll talk to first. Some of my primary duties include handling customer service, subscription inquiries and data, merchandise orders, and shipping. I've learned a lot in the years that I've worked here and love how passionate our customers are about what we do. Our subscribers are the best!
As a country girl that grew up on a farm in central Kentucky, I basically learned to drive in the fields on an old Farmall tractor. I thought of a tractor as just another piece of farm equipment, but in January of 2009, I met Sherry and 3 Point Ink. I quickly learned that a tractor is sometimes much more than just a tractor. Over the last few years, I’ve talked to many of our subscribers who have shared stories and photos of their equipment. Oftentimes these conversations make me long for a ride in the field on the back of that old Farmall. As Executive Administrator for 3 Point Ink, I’m primarily responsible for the financial part of our company and try to keep the business rolling along smoothly. In January of 2013, I took on the responsibility for Advertising Sales for both of our magazines. Our advertisers are important to me, as well as our magazines. Quite a few of them I have had the opportunity to work with in my administrative role and now I am enjoying working with them as we develop ads for their business. Others, I’m looking forward to getting to know and working with. If there is anything I can help you with, please give me a call. If I don’t know the answer to your question, I promise I’ll do my best to find the answer for you!
I have been a designer now for around 23 years. Realistically, I cannot imagine doing anything else. I love the challenges and the endless creative possibilities I have with a blank canvas and to create something that has never been seen before take shape. Unrealistically though, when I grow up I’d still like to be a Rock Star, but for now being a designer is a pretty good gig! I am passionate about what I do and I am one blessed guy!
I photograph tractors and that's mostly all my camera is used for.
I will meet up with the owner/collectors & we will try to come up
with ideas that would make for interesting or unique pictures. It's definitely a real joint effort. Without their enthusiastic
help, I could not pull this off. Thanks go to everyone involved
who make it all happen!
I’m Christina, newest member of the crew here at 3-Point Ink. I’m a Greenville native, born and raised here in our small community. My parents didn’t farm for a living, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t learn an appreciation for the industry from a young age. I grew up as a “country kid” spending most of my time outdoors. More often than not, you could find me down by the pond catching all the bass out of our pond. After high school, I went to college in Southern Illinois and studied graphic design. I moved back to Greenville and married my husband, Clayton. We aren't farmers but it sure feels like it when hay season is in full swing! And yes, we bale the dreaded square bales. Together we have a clever and feisty 18-month old son who just learned to say tractor. Sherry will be so pleased! As the Creative Director, I’ll be working to maintain an active presence on our social media sites, publish the eNewsletter, coordinate events, offer editorial assistance, and spread the word about how awesome our tractor magazines are!
