Store Manager - Graphic Designer
My name is Ian Monterroso. I am from Izabal, Guatemala and I am currently Tom's Office Manager. I attended college in Miami for Graphic Design and am currently furthering my education in Marketing. I have traveled around the world my entire life learning about different cultures and ways of life. My love for drawing and digital art started at a young age and has been a passion of mine ever since. I enjoy interacting with my customers and making their visions into reality here at Tom's. Please stop by and grab a coffee with me, I will be more than happy to help you with any of your press shop needs! As always, thank you for choosing Tom's and we hope we exceed your expectations.

Art and creativity have been my passion since I was young. As a graphic designer at Tom’s, I create unique visual compositions that help our clients strengthen a business they are passionate about! How do I come up with my ideas? I combine my organization with my open-mindedness to build fresh and innovated designs. When I’m not designing, I’m going on a adventure, playing video games, or spending time with family.
I’m Trish. I’m a graduate from UNF with Fine Art and Printmaking. I enjoy traveling but I love coming back to Jacksonville to be with friends and family. Jacksonville has a special place in my heart, it has been exciting to see it grow and change over the years. In my free time, I write and illustrate my own comic called Typo. My second language is Chinese, and I spent a year in China teaching. 你好叫我莎莎！I love coffee and cookies, and I look forward to meeting new people.
My name is Dave Ford and I am a native Floridian born and raised. I was first introduced to printing during my time at Terry Parker High School. I have been a part of the printing industry for 30 years and counting. I run a Ryobi 3200 press, a two color machine, as well as a Thermographic offset printer. This is what produces our specialty raised finish stationary products. Operating this spectacular machine is my specialty here at Tom's Urban Press. I enjoy what I do for a living and I am sure our customers love our unique Thermographic technique. On another note, I am a happily married man with five children. Some of my favorite hobbies are fishing, BBQing, hunting, and playing sports. On my time off, I enjoy coaching a baseball and flag football team.
